How to Use a Thesis

Theses often provide unique research findings, analyses, and comprehensive bibliographies, in addition to modeling particular types of methodology. Check the bibliographies and footnotes of theses and dissertations to gather resources for your own work. Below we have some featured theses that relate to Indigenous music & dance. 

Because theses are longer documents than academic articles & other documents, you can search within some theses if they are downloaded as a PDF with specific keywords depending on your research topic. 

From UBC's Open Thesis Repository, cIRcle, you can find theses done on Indigenous music and through the School of Music on Indigenous music topics.
