Here’s a TeX template for both a M.S. thesis and a PhD. dissertation in the Geosciences department, which is apparently not something that existed before. I borrowed the starting material from Astronomy, so points to them. It’s really easy to toggle between the two, and it should be well-documented enough for novice TeX users to employ. Let me know if you have any questions!
This TeX template is also available to fork on GitHub!
