An education built on discussion and debate

Minerva's curriculum is focused on teaching you the practical knowledge you need to thrive in a rapidly changing world: critical and creative thinking and effective communication and interaction.  

These skills cannot be learned in a lecture hall. Effective learning requires active participation. Minerva's unique seminar-based approach utilizes extensive discussion and debate among peers and professors.

Take the First Step

No SATs or other standardized tests

No personal essays 

No application fee

Minerva's unique and exclusively meritocratic admissions process evaluates student potential rather than opportunity. As a result, Minerva's student body is the most diverse in higher education with ~80% of students coming from outside the United States. 

Tuition is already a third of that at other highly-selective institutions, but Minerva goes further, offering need-based financial aid to all eligible admitted students, regardless of where you come from.

We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2018 enrollment. If you are interested in applying for a subsequent class, you may begin the first part of the application on our website, and we will reach out to inform you when the admissions process reopens.
