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.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

My experience as a graduate student at Barry University's School of Social Work has been incredible! The professors have endowed a great amount of knowledge and I am still in my foundation year! The School of Social work has recently adopted a new curriculum that is trauma based, which has been extremely beneficial interning with child in foster care who have experienced trauma in their past home.This program also has an accelerated program, so I will complete my MSW degree as a part time student in 2 and 1/2 years instead of the 4 years at the local public universities. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in becoming a social worker!

I had a great experience at Barry. It served its purpose and I had 10 interviews for dental school and 3 acceptances.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I have been very please with Barry University. The quality of the instructors as well as the support from educational advisors has been amazing. In my opinion, the biggest draw back to Barry University is the tuition. As a private university- costs are often higher and the demand for scholarships and grants are high.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel that it was to my advantage to graduate with my Bachelors in Science because it helped prepare me for the qualifications needed for medical school. However, there are not many jobs that are looking for someone with a Bachelors in Science. As far as the actual program, it was great to have a one on one interaction with the professors. The faculty as well as the professors are awesome. They are all very helpful, and they will help guide you in the right direction. I cannot think of one disadvantage for having gone to Barry.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

While the professors at Barry are extremely helpful and forthright, the financial aid offices, student services, and other departments lack in continuity.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I really like my graduate program. Even though i'm taking online courses I feel like my academic advisor and my professor are always available whenever I need them. Their response time is remarkable as is their willingness to help. My only complaint or con would be the actual cost to attend the University and theirs even a pro with that, because of the position I hold with my current employer I'm actually receiving a discount which is extremely helpful. That being said the cost to attend a private university such as Barry is putting a major damper on my accessible funds. Like the saying goes "you get what you pay for." All of that immediate and undivided attention i'm receiving comes at a cost, but its a cost i'm willing to accept.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I was a part of a cohort program, and I often felt disconnected from the activities of the university. However, the class times were convenient as I work as a teacher during the day.

Degree: Photography
Graduation Year: 2014

I was attracted to Barry University's Masters in Photography Program because of the facilities offered as well as the competency of the faculty. Barry still offers a color darkroom and the possibility of exploring alternative processes. The professors put a high value on understanding classical photographic processes as well as digital and that was really important to me as an artist. There is also a varied teaching style amongst the professors, so that no student can say they don't have a professor they like and that inspires/motivates them. The only drawback to Barry is its cost for graduate students and lack of scholarship aid. I think that Barry should make a concerted effort to offer at least some kind of scholarship money to graduate students. If they do this, then they will be one of the last, best, photography schools in the country!
