GES Theses

The submission of student’s thesis dissertation is the last step in the program leading to the award of their degree. All theses become a permanent and official record of contribution to the body of scholarship and research undertaken at UH Mānoa, and are publicly available for purposes of research, education, and private study. The printed books* are available for students to borrow for reference. The theses are also uploaded to and searchable via ScholarSpace.

*Effective Summer 2021, GES is no longer printing thesis books for reference. The theses will be available only on this webpage and/or ScholarSpace.
