A master's thesis is important information to include in your resume. It tells the employer about your interests, passions and commitment to your field of study. It can demonstrate to the employer that you are genuinely interested in the field. Your thesis should be prominently placed in your resume's education section so that an employer can see the seriousness of your studies and commitment to them.

Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    List the college where you earned or are in the process of earning your master's degree. Include the school's location, dates attended and the specific master's degree you are studying or studied for. You might also include any activities and honours you received.

  2. 2

    Write "Thesis: (Title of Your Thesis)" under your activities and honours sections. Format the thesis title like the rest of your resume. You might set it off with italics or a bullet point if you use either of these types of formatting in your resume. Do not overdo setting it off from the other information included in your resume, however. It should be consistent with how you presented information in other sections.

  3. 3

    Include any articles you are writing or have written in a separate publications section. If you have yet to publish anything, write, "publication pending," or state when the article is to appear if you know the date or edition of the journal.
