What a Title Page Looks Like

Title pages ALWAYS have on them:

  • The paper’s title
  • Your name
  • The course’s number, i.e., HST 104
  • The date of submission

If you want to put the professor’s name on it or the course’s name, that is fine. BUT do NOT put pictures or other sorts of images on the title page. That sort of practice smacks of high school and indicates an attempt to impress that the student thinks is necessary because the student lacks confidence in what s/he wrote in the paper’s main body
