Guide for Undergraduate Thesis Writers at Brandeis

This guide will help Juniors and Seniors engaged in a thesis writing project at Brandeis University.



To help you meet the many parts of the challenge ahead, we've created this guide. It will help you at different points along your path to completion:

  • Understanding exactly what is expected of you
  • How to do an extended research project and what are some key databases we recommend
  • How to use Interlibrary Loan to acquire any materials Brandeis may not own
  • Learn about citation tools which can make the daunting task of keeping your citations in order a lot easier!
  • Lastly, how to submit your thesis to the Brandeis Archives and about your choices of publishing in an online repository
