Format Guidelines

Senior Thesis Format Guidelines

Due to the library's requirement that senior theses be uniform in structure, the following guidelines must be followed when submitting the final draft of your thesis.

Title Page: Must include title, student's name, phrase indicating what it is submitted for (fulfillment of University Honors, Departmental Honors, etc.), Millersville University, and date it was successfully defended.

Second Page: List the thesis defense committee. You must have their signatures in order for the thesis to be placed in the University Archives. Also, please note the department for which the thesis was written on this page.

Abstract Page: Include title, name, department, and a brief summary of what the paper is about. Please underline keywords which best describe the subject of your thesis as they make cataloging the thesis easier.

Acknowledgement Page:  You must thank all of those who helped you with your thesis project.
