This collection contains Master's theses created by USF St. Petersburg campus graduate students since the University received separate accreditation within the USF System. However, please note that the official copies of theses and dissertations written by USF students who had declared St. Petersburg as their home campus prior to separate accreditation are maintained by Special and Digital Collections in the USF Tampa Library.
Recognizing the valuable contributions of our student scholars, the Poynter Library has created this portal for graduate theses. Some theses may have restricted access for a period of up to one year following graduation if the student requests such an embargo at the time the thesis is submitted to the USF St. Petersburg campus Office of Graduate Studies.
It is the intention of the USF St. Petersburg campus Digital Archive to comply with all U.S. and international copyright restrictions and to respect the intellectual property of all authors whose work is represented in the archive. If any individual or corporate entity has concerns about a specific item, please contact digcol at nelson.usf.edu
