Theses and Dissertations

So You're Writing a Thesis or Dissertation...

Congratulations on your decision to publish your research! We are here to support you as you prepare your document for its final publication and binding. We ask that you visit each of the following links to ensure that you accomplish all necessary tasks on time.

  • Dates & Deadlines
  • These are non-negotiable, so write them down and work to meet or beat them.
  • Thesis and Dissertation Guidelines
  • These guidelines specify directions to submit your thesis or a dissertation in partial fulfillment of degree requirements. These formatting guidelines take precedence over those in the style manuals required by your department. You should consult your supervising professor or committee chair as to the required style manual for your individual program.
  • Thesis/Dissertation Workshop
  • If you have not already done so, you must attend a workshop as part of your final approval process. During these workshops you will learn everything you need to know about Lamar University's process for completing your thesis or dissertation, and you will be able to ask any pressing questions.
