The Threesis Academic Challenge is a competition for GSAS master’s students. Students present the work of a thesis or final project (e.g. creative project, science experiment, or research paper) in three minutes to a panel of judges in accessible language a non-expert can understand. Competitors are judged on how well they grasp the subject, 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.

GSAS will award prizes totaling $3,000. Finalists from departments and programs participating in the GSAS Threesis Incentive Program will be also awarded $300. By attending the event, you will have a chance to vote for the 2015 GSAS Threesis Audience Choice Winner.

Wine and cheese reception to follow the program.

Special thanks to the Wasserman Center for Career Development, participating GSAS Departments and Programs in the Threesis Incentive Program, and to the Subject Librarians of Elmer Holmes Bobst Library.
