In collaboration with the Graduate Student Senate, GPSG, and the Department of Rhetoric, the Graduate College presents The University of Iowa’s second Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

The 3MT competition is part of the Graduate College’s career and professional development effort. The ability to clearly and concisely articulate complex research to non-specialist audiences is a vital skill for both academic and non-academic careers. Graduate students who choose to participate in the 3MT competition will develop communication skills and have the chance to compete for prizes.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland, Australia. In this competition students share their dissertation research to a general audience in an oral presentation lasting at most… three minutes. Begun in 2008, the competition has grown to include more than 125 universities worldwide, including 45 in the United States.
