Three Minute Thesis Competition

Apr 17, 2020 | 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Three Minute Thesis is an opportunity for SBU graduate students to present their dissertation research findings to a general audience in THREE MINUTES with only one powerpoint slide. The goal is for students to engage all their communication skills to make their research vivid and engaging while emphasizing its key point without jargon. 3MT is an opportunity to see an introduction to the exciting graduate research at Stony Brook. All graduate students who have advanced to candidacy and have dissertation findings to share can compete and will receive specialized coaching from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science. While 3MT is a competition, SBU emphasizes the professional development derived from a cohort approach where students participate in small group coaching that encourages peer feedback and support.
