    Default Thesis statement

    Can a thesis statement be longer than just one sentence?

    I mean, in an essay, could the ''thesis statement'' be composed of a few sentences as opposed to only one?

    It's not an absolute rule that it has to be a single sentence: Thesis Statements
    However, when they start stretching to three sentences, I think they become more like introductions that statements.
