USC Ph.D. dissertations are housed in Grand Library and Book Depository. They can be searched through the library catalog, HOMER. To limit your search to dissertations, use the Advanced Search option, and select THESIS-DIS as your default "Location." Please note that although non-Ph.D. doctoral and masters theses are also maintained, such collections are not comprehensive.
For a complete guide on how to find USC dissertations, please see the Dissertations Research Guide.
