3-Minute Thesis Competition


GSEC would like to invite you to attend the first Virtual 3-Minute Thesis Competition this Wednesday, December 9thfrom 3 pm to 5 pm!

An 80,000-word thesis typically takes nine hours to present. Could you present yours in three minutes? Since 2015, the international Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition has helped graduate students hone their communication skills by challenging them to share their research in three minutes in a way anyone could understand.


Why participate in 3MT?

  • Competitors will have 3 minutes and 1 static PowerPoint slide to summarize their entire thesis.
  • It’s a good opportunity to publicize your research, build your communication skills, and enrich your CV.
  • Cash prizes will be given to 1st and 2nd place winners as well as the people’s choice.
  • The 1st place winner chosen by the judges will have a chance to participate in the regional 3MT competition with travel paid for by UTHSC.

Join us this Wednesday to hear our graduate students share their amazing research and compete to win top prizes.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
