Cultural and Environmental Resource Management | Thesis Titles

The title page is the first page of your thesis and lays out what the thesis is about, which school you are representing, who your mentors are and your course of study. This page has a specific layout and may be signed by the mentors themselves. One example is:

Thesis titles may often seem long in comparison to other types of titles, such as novel titles or newspaper headlines. Whereas headlines probably only contain a few words, thesis titles may legitimately contain several dozen words, as long as they fit together syntactically and make sense as a title. In most cases, the thesis writer should avoid writing a title that asks a question, because the title should claim authority over the subject. For example, the title Samuel Clemens, the Man Behind the Pen: A Closer Look at the Non-Literary Life of Mark Twain seems much more authoritative than the title Who Was Samuel Clemens, and Why Did He Choose a Pseudonym? The distinction between declarative and interrogative titles may seem subtle, but declarative titles usually do seem stronger, and the reality exists that readers will decide the thesis writer's competence based at least partially on the writer's ability to write a strong title.

Instead of using an unnumbered chapter, we’ll create a new tex file, customise the layout and then input it. At the top of this file we need to change the page style to plain in order to stop the headers being added in. Now in a similar way to the title page we’ll add in some custom titles and then the abstract text. Each thesis should begin with a title page that provides the title of the document, the type of thesis (i.e., service learning or empirical), the affiliation, author’s name, location, and date. Along with the inclusion of these components, language is included that indicates that the document is in partial fulfillment for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Here is a template:That is the breakdown of the Title. I did spend some time on it but if I write it again now I would likely jazz it up a little. Perhaps adding in a question if I were to publish it. (I will talk about questions a little later). it lays out the important information in clear logical steps which are:As you can see dissertation titles are snappy and to the point. In all seriousness though the titles I have shown were good enough but not exceptional. remember the content is the key here. The content of these dissertations was the important bit. The title was just a short hand description. I said above I'd get to this. Your initial title, the one only you have and look at, should be a question. This will keep you focused. you need to answer that question. It will define your arguments and the literature you use. Now the final title can include a question but this can be frowned upon. A good way to check if it is acceptable is to look at previous dissertations and articles on the subject. See no question marks? then don't use a question. You will notice neither of the above titles were questions. That was because they were written after I knew the answer. Each thesis should begin with a title page that provides the title of the document, the type of thesis (i.e., service learning or empirical), the affiliation, author’s name, location, and date. Along with the inclusion of these components, language is included that indicates that the document is in partial fulfillment for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Here is a template:The dissertation title is your first opportunity to let the reader know what your dissertation is about. With just a few words, the title has to highlight the purpose of the study, which can often include its context, outcomes, and important aspects of the research strategy adopted. But a poorly constructed title can also mislead the reader into thinking the study is about something it is not, confusing them from the very start.
