Finding Dissertation Proposals

To help students locate proposals approved of the members of their committee, the names of committee members are included in the notes field of the catalog record.  From the Library catalog's search page, select "Fine Arts Library" and search the faculty member’s name and the word “proposal” you’ll get a list of all the proposals they’ve participated in. For example, searching “Wagner proposal” generates the following list of projects Dr. Wagner has approved of.
