LSU Graduate School Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition - Fall 2022 Final Round and Reception 

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Currently 3MT is held in over 900 universities across more than 80 countries worldwide.

The final round and reception will be held on November 30, 2022 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Digital Media Center Theater. Learn more about the 3MT® Competition here.
