Many Minerva students started their university experience at another institution. While their reasons for transferring are varied, those who transfer to Minerva possess a desire for a unparalleled learning opportunity. From lecture-based classes to homogeneous student bodies, there is a consistent concern that other institutions are not adequately preparing students for success in the 21st century.
Minerva is different. From the global residential experience and small, discussion-based classes to the international student community, Minerva provides an extraordinary educational experience that is better aligned with the needs of the modern world — and at under half the cost of other top universities.
