'Three Minute Thesis' Competition

Friday, 22 November, 2019

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition celebrating research conducted by doctoral and master’s level graduate students at Saint Louis University will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, in DuBourg Hall.

Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

In a 3MT presentation, a student is asked to describe their thesis research in three minutes using only a single, static PowerPoint slide. The presentation must be understandable to a general university audience, not just to specialists in the student’s area of research.
