NEW TO CSUMB - The Grad Slam is a campus-wide competition for the best short oral research presentation by a graduate student. It is based on the internationally popular “Three Minute Thesis” It is open to any CSUMB graduate student with a significant research project to present (not just master’s theses). We welcome a wide range of research areas including science, social science, and humanities. During the competition, graduate students will be judged by a panel based on their ability to successfully engage a non-specialist audience while communicating key details about their research in three minutes or less with just a single powerpoint slide The State-Wide Competition was held May 6.
