Writing a thesis or a dissertation can be a challenge, but the most challenging part should be the research or the argumentation, not the formatting of the document. That formatting is important, but the Graduate School would like to make that part as straightforward as possible, so that you can focus on the contribution you are making to your field. Hosted by the Coordinator of Student Services, Abby Sherman, the Format Chat workshop features a presentation on the Graduate School’s thesis and dissertation formatting requirements along with an overview of processes, forms/deadlines, common errors and helpful resources.
If you are in the later stages of your graduate program, this event is a good opportunity to help you prepare your work as effortlessly as possible. This way, you can avoid delays in your graduation.
The first session for spring 2024 will be on February 13 from 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m. and you can register on the Format Chat page. This session will be recorded but the recording will only be accessible to the UT campus community.
