Student theses

The College Archives retains undergraduate theses that have received departmental honors, as well as Language School DML dissertations dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. To determine if a thesis is in the Archives, search our listing of Undergraduate Theses and Senior Work. Honors theses and DML dissertations are available for viewing at Special Collections.

For theses and student work available online, search Middlebury Scholarship (go/scholarship/).

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