Final Work

Style Guides for Theses at Estonian Academy of Arts

The style guide should be followed when writing essays or theses. Further instructions are given by the lecturer, if the task requires (e.g. font and format).

Two parallel reference systems are used: either footnotes or author-date. If the choice is not dictated by the curriculum, it depends on one’s personal preferences.
