Afghanistan Dissertation and Thesis Papers (PhD and MA) on Worldcat

The Doctoral dissertations and Master’s theses listed below may or may not be available on loan through the OCLC-Worldcat interlibrary loan system (the website will tell you if your library participates, over 50,000 libraries worldwide do so). They are listed alpabetically by author with no regard for date or level of thesis. When two dates are listed the earlier date is the date the thesis was completed and the later is the date it was introduced into the system. The university where the thesis is submitted is not necessarily the location where the thesis is shelved.

These entries will turn up online through your library’s search system which will probably have a link to search Worldcat. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list. This is just the list of dissertations and theses in the Worldcat system.
