FALL 2020 - Viewing Past Honors Theses

Some Honors Theses from previous students are archived in the UMass Amherst Libraries Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA). Unfortunately, they are not digitized, and can only be viewed in their Reading Room in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library.

For Fall 2020 semester, students who are local can make appointments Tuesday - Friday to go to the Reading Room to view them: 

If you are planning to schedule an appointment, the system requires you to do so at least 24 hours in advance, but SCUA strongly suggest you actually get in touch with them ( even before that, as honors theses are housed off-site and they have limited staff hours on campus in which to pull items. Emailing them is also the best way to get a view of the various theses, as they can send you a spreadsheet including year, department, and thesis title, and you can use that to make selections of what you would like to view on-site.
