Guilford College Thesis Collection: Online Repository

Prior to the late 1960s, every graduating senior was required to complete a thesis and some specific programs continue to have a thesis requirement. Those graduating from the Honors Program, with departmental honors, or to fulfill specific requirements for a particular major complete an undergraduate senior thesis. While primarily undergraduate, the thesis collection also includes any master's thesis completed as part of an earlier religion graduate program and more recent thesis from the college's newer graduate programs. Thesis are available full text online for educational use with permission of their authors. JSTOR's Guilford College Thesis Collection is primarily theses written since 2015 and others that have granted permission to be made available online.
