WHAT IS THE THREE MINUTE THESIS (3MT)?
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Graduate Student Council, Office of Graduate Studies, and Greater Green Bay Chamber are co-hosting a Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) event! Developed by The University of Queensland, 3MT has been adopted in 86 countries and cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. This unique academic competition is open to all currently enrolled graduate degree students at UW-Green Bay. The competition supports graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
One grad student will be selected to represent UW-Green Bay at the Midwest Association of Graduate School’s 3MT Competition in Chicago!
