Thesis/Project Format and Submission

A guide for formatting and submission of Master's Projects and Theses

Thesis/Project Template Files

The Neumann Library provides Microsoft Word templates to help you compose your thesis/project in the format required by the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Templates define the correct pagination, margins, font size and style, and other formatting settings according to the guidelines specified in the guide.

Why use a template? Templates automate much of the  formatting, saving you time. They make use of Styles, which are on the Home ribbon in Microsoft Word. A Style is a command used to format your text with predefined settings, including font size, spacing, indentation, and so on. If you highlight some text and click a style button, it will format that text according to the style. The Table of Contents will pull from these styles to automatically update the headings and page numbers.

Five files are included in the download. 
  • Template Shell
  • Text Composer
  • Sample Pages
  • Thesis-Project Template User Guide
  • Format & Submission Guidelines
