Student Research

Meet some of our doctoral students and learn about their professional and research interests.

Institutional Review Board

Student research must be reviewed if the student is collecting data (e.g., tasks, interviews, videotaping, tests, observations, etc.) from human participants, or if they are administering a treatment of any kind to human participants.

Work closely with your Dissertation/Thesis Chair to write, review, and edit the IRB protocol. Your Chair should submit the IRB protocol, as one document, to the University IRB.  For submission due dates, please refer to the TCU IRB Website.

POSTPONED: Three Minute Thesis

In an abundance of caution, this event has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

What is 3MT®?

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland, which challenges research graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis/dissertation topic and its significance in just three minutes while using language appropriate for a “non-specialist” audience.

Why participate?

3MT® will help students prepare an “elevator pitch” for their research, which is useful at professional conferences, presenting at the College of Education Research and Pedagogy Festival, in job interviews, etc.
