A Step-By-Step Manual On How To Make A Cover Page For A Dissertation

The cover page is a very important part of any academic paper. It is expected that the presentation should be neat or presentable because it is due for grading and evaluation. The event of graduating from any course or academic endeavor greatly depends on it, and the student is expected to have written and understood its contents to attain his dreams and aspirations in life. The following information is a step-by-step manual on how to make the cover page:

Choose the right paper size. Depending on the length of your topic and the specific instructions from your professor, there are at least three paper sizes that you can use:

  1. Short bond paper - dimension is 8 ½ x 11.''
  2. Legal size or long bond paper - dimension is 8 ½ x 13.”
  3. A4 size - dimension is 8.27 x 11.69’’

Type the TITLE and center it on the page. The regular font size is 12, so it should be higher than that, maybe 14 or 16, depending on the instruction of your professor. It is usually in BOLD LETTERS.

Following the title is the subtitle of your paper. A colon separates it and the font should be smaller than the main title. Always use double spacing in all aspects of the paper.

Next thing to include is your name as the researcher or as the proponent. Indicate your first name, followed by your middle initial and lastly, your family name.

Then comes the formal written statement. It is about four or six spaces after your name, depending on the size of the paper that you used. Below is an example:

*A Dissertation Proposal Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School, for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.*

After this presentation, you may opt to place the school or university seal at the center, about two spaces below, and indicate the department where your panel belongs. Below is an example:

Department of Economics

Below this seal will appear the name of the university, the country where it is located and the date of submission or completion of the dissertation proposal.

Finally, make sure that your top, bottom, left and right margins are set to 1” at all times. Please refer to pagination in indicating pages in your paper.

These are the simplest procedures in making a cover page. For a more comprehensive and technical information, please refer your questions to your instructor.
