Three Minute Thesis

On February 24, 2017, the Marquette University Graduate School will host the first annual Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT®) to be held in the Weasler Auditorium from 4-6 p.m.  The event is free and open to Marquette and the community.  No RSVP is required.  Refreshments will be served.




What is 3MT®?

The Three Minute Thesis is a global research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in Australia. This is an academic competition for doctoral and master’s degree students completing a dissertation or thesis to explain their research effectively in three minutes. A $1,000 prize will be awarded to the winner, $500 to the runner-up, and $500 to the people’s choice winner.  The 3MT® winner will move on to represent Marquette University in a 3MT® regional competition at the Midwest Association of Graduate Schools in Indiana, April 6-7, 2017.  Travel and accommodations will be sponsored by the Graduate School.  To view 3MT® winners from around the globe, visit the 3MT® website
