MICA Digital Library

Graduate theses from 2015 to present can be viewed online in the MICA Digital Library. Theses that are "unrestricted" are available to view from any location. Those that are "restricted" can only be accessed on MICA's campus. See the individual program pages for direct links to all online theses from that program.


This guide provides a complete listing of theses on deposit in the Decker Library from all MICA graduate and post-baccalaureate programs (1956-2014), arranged by program.

One can also search for theses in the Library catalog, by using the special collections limiter in the search parameters.

Graduate thesis documentation for these years can be viewed by appointment within the Decker Library. Contact refer@mica.edu or telephone 410-225-2714 to arrange.
