GSAS 3-Minute Thesis Competition

Saturday, April 10
4 – 5 p.m.

Fordham University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) is immensely proud of a graduate student body that has persisted amid a range of challenges in the last year. Even as they navigated conditions of change, disruption, and uncertainty, GSAS students persisted in their commitment to innovative research that will transform their academic fields and positively impact a wider public. Now more than ever, GSAS wishes to celebrate the intellectual curiosity, commitment, and resilience that marks the graduate student community.

We invite you to tune in virtually to the Fourth Annual Fordham GSAS Three-Minute Thesis competition! The event, emceed by Tyler Stovall, Ph.D., dean of GSAS, will feature three-minute video presentations crafted by Three-Minute Thesis participants, followed by a live Q&A session with contestants. As a member of a virtual audience, you’ll have an opportunity to select a “People’s Choice” award winner. All competition winners will be announced at the event’s conclusion.

Students will offer a range of presentations, including:

  • “Who Are Unaccompanied Immigrant Children and Why Should Psychologists Care?”
  • “Climate-Induced Displacement: Gaps in Protection, Security and Response”
  • “Assessing Biodiversity in Madagascar Through Leech-Derived iDNA”
  • “What is Service? The Development of an Idea During the Age of the Crusades”

Three-Minute Thesis is part of Fordham’s Forever Learning Month, which invites participants to attend free workshops, panel discussions, and cultural experiences taking place throughout April.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, and students.
