The annual Three Minute Thesis semi-final competition will take place today in 324 Lloyd Hall. Participating masters and doctoral students will be challenged to present their research in a way that can be understood by audiences with no background in their fields, all in under time limit of three minutes. The event is from 1-5p.m. and is free to attend. 

There will be occupancy for about 75 people, but audience members are welcome to come and experience the three heats beginning at 1 p.m., 2:15 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. The 30-plus participants will cover topics ranging from art and art history, geological sciences, physics and astronomy, economics and finance, psychology, social work, computer science and poetry. The top 15 picked from the semi-finals will move on to the finals on Nov. 13th, which will take place in Russell 159. 

All top-15 finalists will receive monetary prizes, starting at $100. The winner, selected by the audience, will receive the “People’s Choice Award” of $750 and will proceed to compete in the regionals.
