Academic Writing Guidelines

The St. Bernard’s School of Theology & Ministry Style Sheet is a ready-reference guide to the basic format and citation of an academic paper. The sixth edition of A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations by Kate L. Turabian (henceforth Turabian Manual) is the standard to be followed for all papers at St. Bernard’s and must be employed properly and consistently. This style sheet is not intended as a complete substitute for the Turabian Manual. Thorough familiarity with Turabian citation and format is an expectation of all students enrolled at St. Bernard’s.
