# How to reproduce this thesis cover page in LaTeX?

I am typing my thesis' cover page, our university has a typesetting requirement in this link

http://www.helsinki.fi/socialsciences/studying/current/thesis_cover.pdf

I need to reproduce this cover page in my LaTeX setting; could anyone teach me how to do this?

If my answer solved your question, you can accept it and we both get some karma. – altabq Apr 15 '14 at 11:47

Use the titlepageenvironment. Assuming you're using a separate tex file for that, which you include using \input{filename}in your main file, your titlepage tex-file should look somewhat like this

\begin{titlepage}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt} %remove indent at new paragraph

\vspace*{5cm} %vertical space

\textbf{
\huge{
\textsc{
The title of the series
}
}
}\\[25mm] %space after line

\textbf{
\Large{
Possible Subtitle
}
}

\vspace*{10cm} %vertical space

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{p{10cm} X}
&   Name \\
&   University \\
&   Faculty \\
&   Major \\
&   Date \\
\end{tabularx}

\end{titlepage}


This is a little sloppy. I didn't put in all the correct text from your example but I hope you get the idea of everything.

You will have to tweak the \vspace*{distance}a little and maybe also the p{distance}in the tabularx table. Regarding that, you will of course need

    \usepackage{tabularx}


in your preamble. There's other ways to align text (like the tabto package), but I prefer tables.

Hope that helped; comment if you have questions.

There's also a great example here, on wikibooks – altabq May 4 '13 at 18:04
Why \begin{table}? It's not necessary. – egreg May 4 '13 at 18:05
True, in this case it's not. I'll remove it, for simplicity. – altabq May 4 '13 at 18:08
Just don't forget \noindent; but probably it's better to set \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} after \begin{titlepage} to have complete control over the various elements' position. – egreg May 4 '13 at 18:08
Good point! I got so used to having it in my preamble that I forgot to add it here. Will put it in now. – altabq May 4 '13 at 18:12
