Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition–Announcement

University of Mississippi

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition that is being promoted by graduate schools throughout the US and the world. This activity challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their research thesis/dissertation topic and its significance in just three minutes and allows them to use one Power Point slide. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. This skill is critical for all graduate students across all of the academic disciplines.
