The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition is a global event with over 600 institutions participating in over 80 countries. Thesis students compete for cash prizes as they each talk about their thesis in a compelling and accessible way—in just three minutes! The aim of each speech is to communicate the significance of a thesis in a compelling and accessible way.
Open to Amherst College honors thesis students, the 3MT challenges participants to craft an engaging presentation that is based on their thesis project and accessible to a generally educated audience. The aim of each speech will be to communicate the significance of the thesis in a compelling and accessible way.
This event provides a valuable opportunity for students to hone their ability to communicate their work effectively to a public audience and for departments to showcase their students’ work in a spirit of fun competition. Three cash prizes will be awarded by judges chosen from among Pioneer Valley community members.
