Capstone/6000 papers

No, the library does not collect papers written by graduate students in their capstone or 6000 courses. Each instructor in a capstone / 6000 course independently decides on the assignments so there is little standardization of the assignments or papers across a program. These papers do not meet the more rigid Webster University guidelines for a graduate thesis which generally includes a review and defense by a faculty committee (rather than only being read and graded by the course instructor).

Webster University theses and dissertations

The library does collect papers written through the formal process of thesis and dissertation research. While many Webster graduate degrees do not require students to complete a theses, only a capstone paper or project, some majors or programs (for example International Relations and Nurse Anesthesia) require a thesis or dissertation as part of the degree. If you are interested in these items, view the FAQ: How do I find a theses or dissertation?

Finding theses and dissertations from other universities

If you are interested in seeing theses or dissertations written by students at other institutions, you may search the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global database. Some of these records may link to the full-text of the document. If the full-text is not available online, the library may be able to borrow a print copy for you. Ask a librarian for help.
