CalArts Library Master's Theses Collection

The Library and Institute Archives consider student work a vital part of our collections and we take pride in the maintenance of the CalArts Master’s Theses Collection. A student’s thesis is an important culmination of his or her work at CalArts and is a unique resource for current and future students, faculty, and outside researchers.

All graduate students from the following programs are required to submit their thesis in both paper and electronic forms:

  • MFA Writing Program (Critical Studies)
  • MA Aesthetics & Politics (Critical Studies)
  • MFA Composition (Music)

Library filing deadline is 5pm Thursday, May 21, 2020.
