I'm pursuing a degree in politics and government at Minerva University. The science of learning is ingrained into everything Minerva does. Both the rigorous, active learning program as well as the global rotation allowing students to live in 7 countries in 4 years is what drew me to Minerva.

"Wherever you are, whatever you do: be in love."
