As such, they must conform to a standardized "look and feel" in order to achieve consistency.
But really, there's nothing wrong with Times New Roman, y'know? So classic, so elegant. Your thesis will look like a big, long email. There really is something to be said for a classy ish -looking serif font: I hear you that Times New Roman gets tired, though.
A couple old standbys for me have always been Palatino and New Century Schoolbook often shortened, I think, to just Century, but please correct me on that if I'm wrong. They're serif fonts, but with slightly more character ha!
Oh, and serifs are the things that make fonts easier to read; without them, especially in long documents, our eyes have a tendency to blend the letters together. Nice and light, moderate stress, not as in-your-face as TNR. Centruy Gothic for headings. Wu--stay with a serif font for readability, especially in a long document.
And congratulations on finishing your thesis! I wrote this a while ago, but the site crapped out on me between preview and post.
Gill Sans is awesome, but I like it more for frosting than cake. Note particularly the flourishes in the lowercase g and k as well as the capital Q compared to other serif fonts. It's the little touches that make all the difference!
For the math font, Euler is fantastic. And I know the feeling I vacillated for some time when I was pulling my thesis together. Finally settled on Garamond mere minutes before rushing to the printer the day it was due. It was the right choice. I guess, though, that your field of study might influence your choice I was finishing up an MFA in poetry.
My friend, on the other hand, is working on a dissertation in statistics, and he'll likely choose something with a little more heft. Goudy Old Style is the other font I was thinking about when I was working on my thesis. For me, in the end, I found Garamond a little more subtle. Actually, I recommend that font even if you don't have a Mac, but if you have a Mac it's already installed.
I also like Optima, which sort of looks like it has serifs but doesn't actually. It is a bit dated, and not quite dated enough to be classic, unfortunately, so I'm not sure I'd go for it. I used it several times this semester, with Futura for headings.
Any of these will do well. Palatino is getting kind of old and busted, though, and Times New Roman is for high school kids and people who use Arial. If that's not an option, then Garamond's a good way to go.
As a gag, though, it'd be awesome to print up a version with one of these fonts!The master’s thesis may include annexes (positioned at the end of the thesis), f. e. to present more extended source material, statistics, pictures etc. If the material in the annexes is typed this should be done in Arial (font size 11 or 9) or Times New Roman (font size 12 or 10), single or double spaced according to the contents.
May 16, · I'm finishing up my master's thesis, and I am having trouble picking a font to print it in. The thesis writing guide we are given just says it must be a "classic" font.
I struck a new and unexpected problem late yesterday when converting my thesis Word document into a PDF – font rendering in PDFs. For context, my uni requires thesis to be uploaded as PDFs, they are not printed and bound. My thesis was in Word, and used Times New Roman font.
