In presenting footnotes and bibliography, use a consistent form acceptable in your discipline, such as Kate L.Turabian, A Manual for Writers (University of Chicago Press), the MLA Style Sheet, or Campbell's Form and Style (Houghton Mifflin).However, the following pages (e.g., the second and succeeding pages) of each of these sections should be numbered using Roman numerals.
Students in the School of Architecture and the Shepherd School of Music may format their theses to be printed on larger paper.
We recommend a left margin of 1.5" and a top, bottom, and right margin of 1" if the thesis is to be bound.
All signatures on the title page must be original signatures.
No electronic or proxy signatures may be taken at the time of thesis submission on the two original title pages or the original Approval of Candidacy form.
Some students may wish to extend their work beyond the margin requirement for aesthetic reasons, this is acceptable.
Follow in detail the sample form (will download as a word document) in preparing the title page.
The page numbers do not need to meet the 1" margin requirements. is oversized, there is a limit on how much of this can be handled by the archiving process with Pro Quest/UMI.
All figures should appear within the text at the point where reference to them is first made.
For example, John Smith, Associate Professor of Biology.
The word chair or director should appear after the faculty title as appropriate.
