Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Barry University is an amazing community to be apart of. The school is very diverse and inviting to all kinds of people. The teacher-student ratio is small enough to actually get to know your teachers on a personal level. I was very happy with my degree program. There were only 6 people in my graduating class and three professors. I was able to get the help I needed with assignments and career goals during this time. I would recommend this program to anyone thinking of going into this profession.

Barry University is small private university that really takes pride quality education by having small classes taught by experts. Additionally the university is equipped with a variety of forms of assistance for students. What I enjoyed the most about the university was the attention that i received from my professors and the relationships that i was able to build with my classmates.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros of my graduate program are that there are 5 locations for the program I am enrolled in. This allows me to stay local and not uproot my life to move to the school's main campus in a different city. Some of our professors are local and teach at a classroom, however, one con is that for some classes we are required to watch lecture via live webcasting at our local classroom since not all professors are at our location. Every interaction with my professors so far have been positive and they are all extremely encouraging. It is evident how much they want us all to succeed in their program.

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- Most professors are great! Barry really does a great job selecting professors who are masters in their areas and are excellent at teaching. Courses provided at Barry are not available at other PA programs. For example, Radiology and Medical Spanish. Cons- IAV is a blessing and a curse. It is great to have your lecture recorded so you can re-watch them but when technical issues arise it is hard to be patient.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

The BMS program at Barry University is designed to help students interested in applying to professional programs in the health field like medical and dental school. The curriculum mimics that of first year dental/med school which helps students get a glimpse of what their workload and schedule will be like in the future. The faculty are extremely helpful and experienced with the material they are teaching. This program is excellent for someone who had problems completing/obtaining the desired grades needed in their undergraduate program but still wants to get into professional school.

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.

On line classes make it easier for fulltime working students.
3.42 out of 5.0
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.
