Honors Thesis Format Guidelines
GENERAL FORMATTING
Style
The Honors thesis/project should conform first to the style and format required by the
academic discipline. For example, English uses the Modern Language Association (MLA)
style, and Psychology uses American Psychological Association (APA) style. You can then
modify the style to conform to the Honors thesis/project submission criteria.
Consistency
Use the same format for levels of headings, pagination, etc. throughout the entire document.
Professionalism
An Honors thesis is a scholarly work that should reflect the professionalism of the writer. Use
standard typefaces such as Times New Roman or Courier and standard sizes such as 11 or 12.
Margins
The left and right margins must be 1 inch for all pages.
The first page of the front matter sections and main body sections (with the exception
of the copyright page) must have a top margin of 1.75 inches. The top margin of all
subsequent pages of each section must have a top margin of 1 inch. For example, the
top margin of the first Table of Contents page is 1.75 inches, and the second Table of
Contents page is 1 inch; the top margin of the first page of Chapter 1 is 1.75 inches,
