Minerva is a new, accredited university program designed to be uniquely global, rigorous and accessible . Minerva's curriculum is focused on explicitly teaching students the core competencies--critical and creative thinking and effective communication and interaction--by focusing on habits of mind and foundational concepts. All classes are small seminars taught on a proprietary online learning forum, allowing for an unprecedented level of engagement and post-class feedback. To top it off, Minerva's students travel around the world during their four years of college, learning and living in some of the world's greatest cities. Presented by Will Houghteling, Minerva's North American lead.
