Thesis/Dissertation Formatting

Table of Contents

All sections listed at the left beginning with Approval are listed in the table of contents. The table of contents is double-spaced.

Recommendation: create the table of contents AFTER creating content and labeling headings.  See Content/Chapters for more information on headings.  Use the page break function to insert a blank page if needed; do not use the Enter key multiple times.  Then put your cursor at the top of the page to start the table of contents.

Setting up the table of contents for your thesis/dissertation in Microsoft Word takes some time initially, but it has many automated benefits after it is configured. Follow these instructions.
