Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
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: Law
Graduation Year: 2008

Pros: dedicated campus. Small class sizes. Excellent competition trial team. Flexible class schedules. Offers night and part time scheduling. Cons: limited transportation accessibility.
5.0 out of 5.0
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.
4.0 out of 5.0
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.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Pro: Offers the counseling specialization I'm seeking. Con: Way too far from my house.
4.67 out of 5.0
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!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I had a great experience at Barry. It served its purpose and I had 10 interviews for dental school and 3 acceptances.
3.92 out of 5.0
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.
