Reading Sample Theses


As you prepare for your thesis, you might want to get a sense of what you can accomplish in your finished product. Reading past theses can show you the scope and nature of well-done undergraduate projects. Because theses in different areas of psychology often look quite different, it will help you to examine several in the same general area you plan to conduct your research in. A critical examination of several past theses will help you when you come to write up your own project, and can help you now as you being to shape your upcoming research and prepare a feasible proposal.

The Psychology Undergraduate Office has hard copies of several prize-winning theses from the past five years that you may sign out to see what the best undergraduate work looks like. Below are lists of just the titles of recent-past undergraduate theses in psychology that you can browse to give you an idea of the topics of theses students typically write. Hard copies of theses, other than the recent prize-winning theses, are currently unavailable.

Note: Recent theses stored in the Social Relations Library (which recently closed) are unavailable. Inquirers needing a thesis that is not listed in HOLLIS should contact the authors of theses directly to attempt to obtain a copy.
