Back by popular demand, the Graduate School is excited to offer Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) preparation as part of the Professional Development Series. Led by former 3MT champion Nisansala Muthunayake, attendees will learn the key elements of a successful 3MT presentation, including what to say, what to show, and how to conduct yourself.

All are invited to attend, as the takeaways from this session can be applied to any public speaking engagement.
