Thesis Writers' Guide: Formatting

Sample Honor Thesis

All honors theses are listed in the catalog and can be browsed here.

Pre-2010  paper copies are located at the Archives and Special Collections Library.  Post- 2010 honors theses are viewable though the institutional repository,  SCARAB , barring access restrictions at the request of the author.

Word Templates as starting points

These templates can be quite helpful and are designed to facilitate discussions with your advisor about formatting your thesis.  It is important to understand that these are only a useful way to start that conversation.  Ultimately, it is your thesis advisor that is the final arbiter of the necessary form and parts of your thesis and these are meant to be modified with that in mind.
