Minerva’s accredited program provides a liberal arts and sciences curriculum designed deliberately to teach the practical skills students will need to lead, innovate, and solve the most complex challenges of our time.

Based on the science of active learning, Minerva’s intensive classes require full student participation. Each intimate session is conducted on an advanced technology platform, called the Active Learning Forum, which is expressly built to engage students in the course material, through active discussion and collaborative work.

During their first year in San Francisco, students are introduced to an extensive set of learning objectives that underlie four core competencies — critical thinking, creative thinking, effective communication, and effective interactions. Every semester thereafter, they build upon this intellectual foundation while traveling to six new cities around the world.

Students and graduates also gain the benefits of a dedicated Professional Development Agency, which helps with career preparation, promotion of accomplishments, and placement with top organizations in a diversity of fields.

This combination of innovative academics, global cultural experiences, and career preparation enables Minerva students to realize their full potential intellectually, personally, and professionally.

Minerva offers excellent programs for those students interested in the STEM fields:

Computational Sciences 

Computational sciences provide the scientific foundations for making sense of natural, human-mediated, and social phenomena through analytics, computational methods, and modeling. In an age of ubiquitous — and often overwhelming — data, the ability to harness that data to reflect, reach out and make better decisions is increasingly crucial. The Computational Sciences major prepares you to use logic and data analysis to make informed decisions and solve complex problems.

Natural Sciences 

Scientists and engineers use theories and findings of the physical and chemical sciences as well as the biological and biomedical sciences to develop new technologies, improving the lives of millions of people around the world. Making effective decisions in many technology-oriented organizations requires a deep understanding of the natural sciences; the Natural Sciences major gives students the practical knowledge to become leaders and innovators in science and technology-based organizations.
