The Threesis Academic Challenge is an academic competition for GSAS master's students. Students present the work of their thesis or final project (e.g. creative project, science experiment or research paper) in three minutes or less to a panel of judges in accessible language a non-expert can understand. Competitors are judged on how well they grasp the subject of their thesis, their ability to discuss the topic to non-experts, and presentation skills. Students compete for a grand prize of $1,000 and other prizes while learning to organize ideas and speak about them persuasively in a fun, academic atmosphere.
GSAS will award prizes totaling $3,000 and departments participating in the GSAS Threesis Incentive Program will award $300 to finalists from participating departments and programs. By attending the event you will have a chance to vote for the 2016 GSAS Threesis Audience Choice Winner.
Wine and cheese reception to follow the program.
Special thanks to the Wasserman Center for Career Development, the Subject Librarians of Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, and every department and program at the Graduate School who participated in the Threesis Incentive Program, without whom this event would have been impossible.
