USC 3 Minute Thesis Competition - Final

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, which challenges research higher degree students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. For more information about the background and history of the 3MT®, please visit the 3MT website.
