Thesis titles may often seem long in comparison to other types of titles, such as novel titles or newspaper headlines. Whereas headlines probably only contain a few words, thesis titles may legitimately contain several dozen words, as long as they fit together syntactically and make sense as a title. In most cases, the thesis writer should avoid writing a title that asks a question, because the title should claim authority over the subject. For example, the title Samuel Clemens, the Man Behind the Pen: A Closer Look at the Non-Literary Life of Mark Twain seems much more authoritative than the title Who Was Samuel Clemens, and Why Did He Choose a Pseudonym? The distinction between declarative and interrogative titles may seem subtle, but declarative titles usually do seem stronger, and the reality exists that readers will decide the thesis writer's competence based at least partially on the writer's ability to write a strong title.
