Prepare for a Career in Health Sciences

Within the Colleges of Natural Sciences and Computational Sciences, Minerva has designed a flexible, student-centered curriculum that provides both a liberal arts foundation as well as the specialization and hands-on experience needed for careers in the health sciences, medicine, and engineering.

Individually-designed tutorials and the senior Capstone project provide in-depth exploration of topics the student selects, while summer and term-time internships in research laboratories throughout the world provide the practical experience needed for admission to medical school, graduate study, or employment in science, health policy, and law.

100 % merit-based admission:

No application fee

No SATs or other standardized tests

No quotas of any kind

No enrollment maximum

The experience is challenging, but applying to Minerva is simple. Begin with our online application and share your basic information. You will then gain access to the Admission Center, and an admissions process that allows you to showcase skills and achievements in unique ways.

Minerva's tuition is less than a quarter of that at other top institutions, and need-based financial aid is available through scholarships, work study and loans. All qualified students are eligible, regardless of where you come from.

As an HOSA member, you are also eligible for a $5,000 need-based scholarship. If accepted, you will automatically be considered for this special scholarship.

Apply now, and begin a new journey.
