Three Minute Thesis: Faculty of Arts heat 2020Export this event to calendar

Friday, March 6, 2020 — 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM EST

Join us for the Arts 3 Minute Thesis heat and learn about the outstanding graduate research happening within the Faculty of Arts! Graduate students will convey the breadth and significance of their graduate research to a panel of judges.

Come by to watch, listen, learn, be inspired and support our graduate students—or register to participate in the heat! 

The competition

The 3MT invites graduate students to participate in this friendly contest that challenges graduate students to communicate their research in clear, concise, engaging and accessible ways. Competitors use only one slide and have three minutes to present their thesis and its “so what?” value to an audience of peers. The winner(s) of the Arts heat will move on to compete in the University of Waterloo 3MT competition on Thursday, March 26, 2020.
