Formatting Your Thesis with Microsoft Word

This guide includes video tutorials designed to help you get most of the formatting of your thesis correct the first time. Using these videos to format your thesis will save a lot of time when it comes to having your format checked.

Appendices

Instructions for inserting appendices using Microsoft Word will be coming soon.

In the meantime, some information about creating appropriate Appendix subheadings can be found on U-M's guide: https://guides.lib.umich.edu/c.php?g=283073&p=1886010

Appendix, Appendices, List of Appendices

If you only have one appendix in your thesis, adding that is pretty straightforward. It is mostly treated like another chapter, except "Chapter" is changed to "Appendix". When you have more than one appendix, it gets more complicated and you have to add a List of Appendices in the front matter part of the thesis. The video tutorial demonstrates how to add a single appendix, how to format multiple appendices, and how to add the List of Appendices to the front of the thesis.
