College theses or Language School DML dissertations?

To determine if a thesis is in the Archives, search our listing of Undergraduate Theses & Senior Work.

The College Archives retains undergraduate theses submitted by department coordinators or faculty that have received departmental honors, and Language School Doctor of Modern Languages (DMLs) dissertations dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.

Honors theses and DMLs are available in the Special Collections reading room during open hours.

Search Middlebury Scholarship (go/scholarship).

Middlebury College students can voluntarily submit theses and other academic work at go/scholarship. Unlike the theses retained in the College Archives, these online projects have not necessarily received departmental honors.
