# titlepage with article class

I use article document class and want to make a titlepage. But I need to put more than just author, year and title. I also need to put my university and my supervisor and that is my bachelor thesis. If I just write it there without anything like \author{}, in the .pdf it's on the page before the title page.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
Bachelorarbeit

\begin{center}
University
\end{center}

\title{Title}

\author{Frida}

supervisor: Prof XY

\date{\today}

\maketitle
\end{titlepage}

\end{document}


Why don't rewrite your frontispiece from scratch without the use of \maketitle inside titlepage?

I mean something like:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
\bfseries
\huge UNIVERSITY OF \ldots
\vskip.2in
\textsc{\LARGE Faculty of \ldots}
\vskip.2in
\large Department of \ldots
\vskip1in
\Large Bachelorarbeit
\vskip1.5in
\emph{\huge Title}
\end{center}

\vskip1.4in

\begin{minipage}{.25\textwidth}
\begin{flushleft}
\bfseries\large Supervisor:\par \emph{Prof. XY}
\end{flushleft}
\end{minipage}
\hskip.4\textwidth
\begin{minipage}{.25\textwidth}
\begin{flushleft}
\bfseries\large Student:\par \emph{Frida}
\end{flushleft}
\end{minipage}

\vskip1.3in

\centering
\bfseries
\Large Year \the\year
\end{titlepage}

\end{document}
