This is a collection of Graduate-Level Student Theses, Dissertations, and Portfolios, produced by Lynn University students during their masters or doctoral degree programs.

Printed volumes of Lynn student theses and dissertations were digitized in the Summer of 2017. Any personal and/or sensitive information such as resumes, contact information, and addresses has been redacted. The University Archives has retained a copy of the original, unedited scans.

Going forward, all Lynn University masters and doctoral students are required to submit their theses, dissertations, and portfolios to the Lynn Library for inclusion in SPIRAL. All theses, dissertations, and portfolios must submitted in the form of a PDF file (we can also add additional material such as video files, PowerPoint Presentations, iBooks, webpage links, Keynote presentations, and more).

Please submit final graduate-level theses, dissertations, and portfolios via email to Lea Iadarola & Jared Wellman.
