Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate nursing program at Barry University provide quality education for nurses who are inclined to make a difference within the profession. You work with professors of various field in nursing, who prepare you for an tough but rewarding journey. The length of study depends on which track you choose, whether Masters, Doctorate or PhD. Although the courses are a full semester it is extremely fast paced and it is very easy to lose track.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I think that the people are very friendly and faculty and staff very motivated to help you succeed. Although the passing bar rate is not high I am only concerned with one testtaker as far as that is concerned.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

By entering the DNP program, the program will aide in my focus on primary care practice by providing the highest level of education in nursing. The program’s scientific and research content will improve my clinical practice, expand my educational knowledge and credential required for safe nursing practice, quality care of patient outcome, and enhanced leadership skills. As the next transcendence in nursing, my goal is to ensuring patient safety, promoting efficient timeliness, fostering patient-centerness and improving quality health care to the public. As recommended by the IOM, Future of Nursing, doubling of nurses with doctorate degree by 2020 will advance the nursing profession by increasing and retaining nurse clinicians and teachers resulting in the same level of educational knowledge; as a result reduce mortality and morbidity and help restore widespread communities. However, the cons of my graduate program is the lack of available professors to provide the level of knowledge and intimate relationship with the students.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The major pro is that I know if I succeed in this program I can get into a medical school, which is what I desire. The con of this program is that sometimes it does not feel like I am part of a university but a building that looks like an office building. The cost of living near the school is high as well.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The Pros are that the program advances you for acceptance into future professional schools, gives you a preview to Medical and Dental school classes, and the staff was very educated. The Cons are that the program is expensive, there is not a library easily accessible in the program's building, and the lab equiment is not relatable with Medical/Dental school.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Barry's Biomedical Sciences masters program is difficult but doable. The teachers are highly qualified and want their students to not only exceed but to also excel. The only down side is the location. There is no on-campus housing at the location of the program and the surrounding area is not the safest.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall it is a well respected program. The program is designed for the average nurse. The class size is small whereas teacher student relationships bloom. Cons of the program are similar to many others. There is a lot of time involved, lots of reading, assignments and group activities. The cost is expensive. However, I have learned from recent graduates, it is worth it at the end.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The great thing about this graduate program is that the staff and professors help you every step of the way. The only con that I am aware of is that the technology at the main campus is a little out dated.
