Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Guide



This guide supersedes all previous Auburn University manuals and Guides for the preparation of theses and dissertations. Last updated: March 2021.

Auburn University requires a dissertation for all Ph.D. degrees and a thesis for many master’s degrees. The thesis or dissertation is a demonstration of the student’s mastery of the field of study and an example of the student’s creativity, dedication, and the ability to work independently. It should make a significant scholarly contribution.

Auburn University graduate students are also required to demonstrate competency in electronic publication and must submit their theses/dissertations through AUETD (the Auburn University Electronic and Thesis Dissertation Library). AUETD allows a student’s work to be viewed freely by anyone on the World Wide Web.
