I'm looking for the effect in the following image. Ive done it by putting 2 images of lines above and beneath the title but that is quite lame, any help would be appreciated.

    Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 May 2 '14 at 9:12

Something without the usual \maketitle approach, using a \tcolorbox, all wrapped up in a command.



\begin{tcolorbox}[width=\textwidth,arc=0mm,auto outer arc,boxrule=0pt,toprule=3pt,bottomrule=3pt,colframe=black,colback=white,top=1cm,bottom=1cm,#1]
#2 \tabularnewline%
\tabularnewline  %
#3 \tabularnewline
\tabularnewline %
#4 \tabularnewline%
\tabularnewline %


\MyTitle{\Large \textbf{Dies ist der Titel der Dissertation}}{\large \textbf{\textcolor{blue}{und hier eventuell ein Untertitel}}}{\large\textbf{\textcolor{darkgray}{Otto Normalverbraucher}}}
