Higher Education for the 21st Century

Welcome to Minerva


Even in a time when students are learning remotely more than ever, Minerva’s degree stands out as an intentionally designed program. Using research from the science of learning, Minerva’s fully active learning pedagogy and curriculum enable students to develop their critical and creative thinking skills.

Moreover, Minerva’s global rotation model allows students to understand the diversity of the world by immersing themselves in it rather than reading about diversity from a campus bubble far away. Minerva students build upon their intercultural and professional knowledge throughout their four years, preparing them for success in our highly globalized society after graduation. Combining an innovative curriculum with an unparalleled, immersive global experience, Minerva is the only university built to prepare students for success in the 21st century.

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021 enrollment. If you know a student who might benefit from Minerva's innovative education, invite them to learn more.

Each discussion-based seminar, with fewer than 20 participants, pushes students to continuously interact with their professors and classmates. Through this deep collaboration, they learn to question assumptions, analyze information, perform simulations, devise novel solutions, and fundamentally reshape the way they think about the world.
