The following Thesis Template has been designed to help guide you through all aspects of thesis formatting, from the Title Page, through the Front Matter including the Table of Contents, and on to the body of the thesis itself.   

  • If at any point you have questions about particular formatting guidelines then please refer back to the guidelines given in Formatting and Submission 
  • If you run into any difficulties using the template, please direct your questions to Andy Engelward, Assistant Dean of Academic Programs, at engelward@math.harvard.edu
  • Please be aware that you need to follow the directions given in the template as carefully as possible - it is possible to cause issues if you are not aware of maintaining the appropriate section breaks, and that you use the built in style guides to create your section headers. 
  • Please also be aware that the template is revised and upgraded from time to time - we will leave a version number in the template title so you can tell if a newer version has been introduced by comparing it to any earlier templates you might have already downloaded.
