Other Research Guides

Doing research while at MALS is an experience that will largely be shaped by your concentration.

Some disciplines have full research guides, that you might want to browse in addition to this one:

Other concentrations do not have their own complete guide (yet), but if you have suggestions about what resources have been helpful to you in those areas, please let your librarian know!

MALS Theses

MALS Theses submitted after February 2014 can now be found in the Graduate Center's new Institutional Repository, Academic Works.

For more information about thesis submission guidelines, please see the Dissertations & Theses guide.
