A New Kind of Classroom

Impactful
Learning

At Minerva University, technology is used as a conduit to intentionally improve the educational experience.

All of our classes take place via a virtual learning environment and are small discussion based seminars with around 20 students that spark dynamic, energetic, and stimulating class experiences.

A Dynamic Education

Take part in an interdisciplinary approach to learning that immerses you in the coursework and enables you to critically engage with a growing range of interesting subjects and topics. Foundational courses focus on developing abilities to think critically and creatively, to communicate effectively, and to work well with others.

Intimate Classes, Rigorous Learning

Collaborate in classes in which you are encouraged to engage with their peers and professors, debate your opinions, and share your views. The impact of your education is enhanced through an active learning environment paired with a curriculum focused on developing core competencies needed for leadership, innovation, and global citizenship.

Technology as a Conduit

Move fluidly between lively discussions, breakout groups, debates, simulations, and more to enhance your understanding. You will receive individualized evaluations from engaged professors who use class time data, quiz scores, and grading to offer precise feedback.
