Step by Step Guide to Preparing Your Honors Thesis for Submission to the Library

Step 1:  Declaring your intent to go for honors

Submit the Honors in Major Study Application to department/committee chair before October break.

Step 2:  Write your Thesis!

As you write your thesis, even though your head is buried in research and draft writing, here are a few “housekeeping” things to keep in mind:

  1. The Purpose of submitting your thesis to the Library.
  2. The Margins, Spacing, and Type you must use.
  3. Your thesis must be properly formatted. This is not just something you do at the end of the writing process; you should be considering it all along.
  4. We advise you think about page numbering now, rather than later.
  5. Stay informed about the use of images and media such as audio and video.

Step 3:  Printing and Digital Submission Preparation

Keep in mind what you need to print and how which are detailed in the Printing and Submission page.

Step 4:  Submit! (by Reading Day, May 14, 2014; Fall semester Dec 12, 2014 )
