Minerva offers a new and accredited university program that prepares the brightest and most curious students of the world to become the next generation of global leaders. 

Whilst studying at Minerva, students move around and live together in dorms in seven of the world's greatest cities - including San Francisco, Berlin and Buenos Aires - during their four years of study.

We offer a reinvented liberal arts curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking - every class is a small seminar, based on intensive discussion and spirited debate through our Active Learning Forum - a customized interactive technology platform. At Minerva, there are no lectures - we teach HOW to think, not WHAT to think. We are committed to accessibility with a wide range of Scholarship and Financial Aid options to students with demonstrated need.
