Theses and other long documents (e.g., books, manuals, reports) can present challenges that shorter documents don't. It is more difficult to maintain a standard "look and feel" throughout a long document like a thesis. This course will demonstrate features in Word that will make formatting your thesis easier and less time consuming, such as: styles, numbering headings, page numbering, captioning tables and figures, footnotes, cross references, table of contents, and lists of tables and figures.
