Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

There should be a tracking system where students can see the classes that they have already completed and those that still need to be completed. The system should show the grades received and when the class was taken. Students should be able to see if they've met or are meeting the requirement for their program. Aside from talking to their advisor, they will know at a glance how they are progressing along in their program of study.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Barry University is awesome! My experience there was very positive. I learned a lot of pertinent information about the field of reading. I believe the program has fully prepared me to be a successful Reading Coach/Specialist. My professors were very understanding and knowledgeable of the information provided. I attended the cohort in West Palm Beach, and it was very convenient as far as traveling. I was able to maintain a 4.0 the entire duration of the program and that's while I was a full-time mother and teacher. It was very difficult but definitely worth it. I recently graduated with my master's degree and would like the world to know that I am Barry proud. I would recommend this University to anyone seeking to gain a higher education.

Barry University affords each student with the direct attention needed to succeed. Their academic programs rival the best schools and their networking systems are nothing less than impressive.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- Faculty are always available to help with class and personal issues. They are always willing to help and friendly. Majority of the professors are great at teaching and always encouraging our growth. Teleconferencing is great because our lectures are recorded and we can watch them when we please. Also it gives us access to some great professors Cons- Teleconferencing can sometimes get disconnected or have bad feedback and can be frustrating.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The biomedical sciences program at Barry University is quite expensive since it is a private school. The classes offered are also in one building which is not very large. Besides those cons, I feel the professors of the BMS program truly care about your success. Unlike my undergrad experience at a university of 50,000 people, the class sizes are smaller and allow for more interaction. The program is geared towards preparing students for professional schools and offers the help necessary to do well on the MCAT and DAT. It also offers volunteering and networking opportunities. The program is full of diverse people from undergraduate schools all over the country and most are very friendly. The program is intense but I feel it prepares you for a fast paced curriculum like that of a professional school.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors, staff and administrators all are there to not only facilitate student learning but are there to assist the students along the way. Most professors post office hours as a requirement, the professors at Barry School of Law are actually encouraging and happy to assist.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

A pro and a con is that my program is weekend based. It is great because it gives me time to work and have a family/social life during the week. It is a very difficult program though because you have to be extremely dedicated and devote yourself to studying in between classes and almost teach yourself through readings and assignments. The faculty is very helpful. The campus and small and easy to navigate.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the benefits is that the classess are only once at week which is great for students who also work full time. One of the problems that I have with the school is the location, which is not around a great neighborhood and the location is pretty far from my house.
