Maybe this is a really basic question but i can't seem to find an appropriate answer. For my master's degree thesis i need to have several titles in the cover (university name, my title, the subject of the work, etc.). Any elegant way to implement this?

(My university unfortunately does not provide any LaTeX template. By the way, suggestions have been awesome so far!)

I needed a cover similar to this:

  • probably want to use \begin{titlepage}... environment to make a custom title page. – cslstr Mar 19 '14 at 14:45

    Some universities have existing LaTeX templates for theses. If there is such a template, it would have the necessary title page, and laid out to university standards. That might provide a good starting point. – alexwlchan Mar 19 '14 at 15:16
  • Can you point to a typical cover similar to the one you need? – egreg Mar 19 '14 at 17:30
  • Just an academia related remark: make sure you may use the logo of the university. Usually they are only allowed on official documents. A thesis, however handed in to that institution, is no such document. – Martin - マーチン Mar 20 '14 at 18:19

One could control the entries using in \maketitle (such as \title, \author and/or \date). However, for large documents its simplest to use the titlepage environment and enter the content as is required by the university's specification. Here's a rough template:

enter image description here

{\LARGE\bfseries My thesis title}


{\Large Some subtitle for my thesis}


{\large An Author}


{\bfseries Submitted in fulfillment of the degree \ldots}


{\itshape University of Randomville}

With exact specifications one can provide a more accurate template.
