A New Way to Learn

Coursework at Minerva University is different. Instead of focusing on memorizing facts, figures, and concepts, students take a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to their studies while traveling to and immersing in cities around the world such as Hyderabad and Buenos Aires to Berlin. Technology is leveraged as a conduit for active synchronous classes paired with in-person and hands-on engagement through local experiences. Seminar style classes take place with around 20 classmates. Knowledge and skills learned in class are then strengthened by practice in real-world scenarios through civic projects, independent study, location-based assignments, and internships.

At Minerva University you will build experience, transformative knowledge, and a close-knit global community alongside forming a real-world connection between theory and practical application.
