Writing is an essential part of English learning in college. As a result, how to improve the writing standard has become one of the major topics in English learning. The thematic structure, especially patterns of thematic progression plays an important role in cohesion and coherence of writing. This thesis illustrates the necessity of thematic structure in college English writing in the theoretical and practical perspectives. In theory, thematic structure can be used not only to analyze the passage as a whole, but also to make it easy to grasp the main idea. In practice, the English writing in college focuses more on the clear and well-organized structure than correct grammar and wide vocabulary. Then this thesis proposes some strategies to improve English from the perspective of thematic structure, which tends to give some enlightenment to students in college.
