What are the format requirements for a Master's Thesis or Ph.D. Dissertation?

The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library is the repository for Ph.D. dissertations and Master’s theses. The University Archives partners with ProQuest to publish and distribute Princeton University dissertations beyond the campus community.

For detailed information on how to prepare the bound volume of your Ph.D. dissertation please visit Mudd Library Dissertation Requirements. Please take special note of how to format the title page, which must list your advisor’s name. The document also provides information on the submission process and requirements.

Master’s degree students are required to submit two bound copies of their thesis to the Princeton University Archives at the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library.  For formatting guidelines, follow the instructions for the bound volumes in Part 3 of the Mudd Dissertation Requirements.  Master's degree students are not required to submit to the ProQuest UMI ETD Administrator website. No paperwork is required.
