I see there are two conflicting Guidelines for the writing of a thesis: the Dean's and the Department of Modern Languages. The former says one thing, the other another thing. So, whose guideline should we follow?

The Dean's Office issued a Guideline that is generic and attempts to be a "one size fits all". The requirements for graduation papers differ from Department to Department, because so do their methods and style of working. Thus the students in Ethnology often work with massive field data they collected (legends, folk poetry, dialect), which obviously occupy a lot of space. It is customarily for students in Romanian Lit to write ample reviews of criticism.

The Anglo-Saxon style tends to be more compact. This is why we have formulated our own set of rules.

And a simpler way to answer your question: who will be the members of your Thesis Examination Board: the people in the Ethnology, or Romanian, or Theology department, OR the Modern Languages Dept?
