One thing to be aware of is that some programs require or have required written projects other than theses to complete the program, and these are listed in the catalog as something other than “thesis.” For example, current MEPD students complete graduate projects, which are found in the catalog under the keywords “graduate projects.” Seminar papers can be found using the keywords “seminar papers” or browsing by call number in the WS section

Seminar papers written by UW-L students can be found in the second floor stacks in the WS call number area.
