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!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

My personal experience at Barry University has been very good. The university if very close to my house. This is very convenient since I have a family and work full-time as well as doing graduate program. I can only think of two cons of the graduate program: 1) expensive (am currently taking loans to pay for tuition), and 2) professors concentrate on reading from power points than actually teaching, but they did warn us that this is a self-guided program with lots of self-studying. Other than that, professors are very approachable and are willing to help. The workload is manageable for working adults, which is also great. Overall, am having a good experience.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience thus far in the biomedical science program at Barry University is by far one of the most rewarding experiences I have had during my educational journey. Upon my arrival to orientation my flight was late coming in and I missed orientation. I was concerned that I would not be able to start the program due to me running late. But when I got to campus the staff members there were extremely nice and helpful in getting me settled in and caught up on what I missed during orientation. The staff personally took me over to meet my advisor and get my schedule set up for the upcoming semester. Once I saw the financial load of my courses I explained to my advisor on the spot that I needed to drop one of my classes to make sure I could afford to pay for school with my financial aid... my advisor was VERY understanding and restructured my schedule right there on the spot that was conducive to my finances in allowing me to still pay for school and be able to live and support myself off my financial aid. The courses offered for the program prepare you for dental and medical school (depending no your academic track). The program is there to help you get to the next phase of your education which for most students is dental school or medical school. The course are not easy but they are not hard either as long as you apply yourself. There are a lot of resources available in order to assist you in being successful in the program. The professors are accessible at your disposal outside of their office hours. They are good at responding back to emails, answering phone call, etc. The cons to the program are not being able to have a full gross anatomy course due to the lack of cadavers available for the program. But there is a head neck anatomy portion to the course which is great for dental bound students. The location of the program is not on the main campus so you don't have access to go the library at the satellite campus; so most students have to leave the satellite campus and go elsewhere to study if you don't want to study in the study rooms they provide. There is no computer lab on the satellite campus so we are not able to print unless we go to the main campus (hopefully that will change soon). The main campus is about 20 minutes away so most students go over to NOVA library to study which isn't too far. But overall the study rooms they provide do suffice and are quiet areas to study just in case you are not able to go to NOVA or the main campus. Overall I am very happy with the program and look forward to an awesome future in dental school.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

It's a relatively small program, which makes it easy to get in touch with the professors, who have been very helpful so far. They seem to put a good amount of emphasis on our future prospects (taking standardized tests, applying, interviewing, etc.), something I didn't experience much in undergrad. The area is much nicer than the Barry main campus, although it is a little more expensive to live in because of that.
