Experience student life at Minerva
We invited award-winning documentary filmmaker Shaul Schwarz to live with our Founding Class students. The result is an in-depth view of student life at Minerva.
A Minerva education challenges you beyond your coursework. Each residential location is an opportunity to learn new customs and explore new areas of knowledge. By engaging directly with multiple cities and diverse cultures, you expand your understanding and broaden your worldview.
Our Founding Deans are among the most expert in their fields. They have been selected for their outstanding academic achievements, their worldly perspectives and, above all, their dedication to teaching students the critical skills necessary for success in a rapidly evolving world.
All classes are taught via live interactive seminars, with fewer than 20 students. Deliberately designed to improve your educational experience, the advanced video platform facilitates personal engagement and modes of instruction not possible in a traditional classroom setting.
Founder Ben Nelson and Founding Dean Stephen Kosslyn, Ph.D., describe what makes Minerva unique among other highly selective universities. From the founding principles to the structured curriculum, the learning experience is designed to enhance your intellectual growth and accelerate your career trajectory.
