STEP 3 - TEMPLATES FOR THESES, DISSERTATIONS, AND NURSING CAPSTONE PROJECTS (read instructions in Step 2 first)
Template 3 - Arial 12 pt.
DO NOT begin using this template until you have read the USM Guidelines in full - found in Step 2 (.pdf file) of this website.
It will be well worth your time to fully read the instructions in the Guidelines before using the template, as the template can be broken if used incorrectly.
There are instructional videos below the Guidelines that should be used in conjunction with the Guidelines (not instead of the Guidelines).
CONTACT THE REVIEWER for help using the template. A template lesson can be scheduled for an in-person session or the Reviewer can initiate screen share
Template 3 was designed for those in the STEM fields who require numbered headings (College of Science and Technology). Those in the STEM fields who do not need the numbered headings should use Template 1 or Template 4.
Students in Arts & Letters, Education & Psychology, Health, and Nursing probably should not use this template. If a student from one of these colleges wishes to use this template, please discuss the choice with the Reviewer before beginning.
