Congratulations on making it to these final steps of your degree! This guide provides information about formatting and submission of master’s theses and doctoral dissertations for GSAS programs.

Once you submit, you should receive a response from GSAS within 1 to 3 business days, or within 5 business days if you submit during the week of the deposit deadline. If you have not received a response from GSAS after submitting, or if you have any questions after reviewing this guide, please email Abigail Arnold at aarnold26@brandeis.edu for support. 

Please note: These guidelines apply to dissertations and master's theses (including bachelor's/master's theses) only and do not apply to master’s papers. Students completing master’s papers should follow their program's procedures for formatting and submission to the program. Master's papers are not submitted to ProQuest for publication.
