Increase Line Spacing in Title - Quick Latex Question

In summary, increasing line spacing in a title can improve readability and make it more visually appealing. This can be done in LaTeX using the \titlespacing command, which allows for customization of the spacing before and after the title, as well as between lines within the title. The default line spacing for titles in LaTeX is 1.2 times the font size, but this can be changed to personal preference. A commonly used value is 1.5 times the font size, achieved by setting the \titlespacing command to 1.5em. The line spacing in a title can be adjusted without affecting the rest of the document by using the \titlespacing command specifically for the title section.

I hope this is the correct section, I don't see why not?

I want to increase my line spacing JUST for my title and nowhere else. The only line spacing change command I can find is a global one.

Any help?

You could manually insert breaks into your title with the \\[optional_length_argument] command, e.g.
Code:
First line of title \\[\baselineskip] Second line of title
or
Code:
First line of title \\[0.2in] Second line of title
