Not all abstracts written by students are in accordance with systematic abstract in a related field of science. In fact, abstracts are the main and important part in the description of the contents of a scientific work so the reader becomes interested in continuing his reading. This article aims to describe the variation of rhetoric in thesis abstracts from three related fields, namely linguistics, literature, and language teaching. This research method uses a descriptive analysis approach from 30 thesis abstracts in the past year. The five rhetoric models of Swales and his colleagues were chosen as an analytical framework for rhetorical structures. The results of this study, the abstract of language teaching and linguistic fields have five stages in the presentation of the abstract, while the literary field is only four moves. However, move 1 and move 5 of the three fields are in the optional classification, except in the literary field there is no other move. Move 2 (purpose) is categorized as conventional, move 3 (methodology and move 4 (result) as obligatory, and move 1 (introduction) and move 5 (conclusion) as optional. In general, the move pattern used in this thesis abstract is 3 move patterns (move 2, move, 3 and move 4). It can be concluded that the majority of students uses the three move pattern in writing Indonesian language abstract in their thesis.
