Formatting Your Content
In order provide a professional and consistent look, a set of general, uniform formatting requirements have been established for GW theses and dissertations with respect to page margins, pagination, page order, and required pages in the front matter. Within this formatting framework, some of the individual colleges or school have specific formatting requirements. These specific formatting requirements are built into MS Word Templates (Title Page through the Abstract Page) for each school or college. Annotated Style Guides for GW dissertations and master's theses for individual colleges or schools provide a visual guide and detailed explanations about required content and formatting.
