Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

With the specific program that I am in, some of the coursework is through distance learning. With some of the courses, such as finance, it just makes it tougher for the student. I have definitely learned a lot and am hopeful that I will graduate very soon since I only have 2 courses left to finish my graduate degree. The one good thing about distance learning courses is that the professors do make themselves available to the students, which is definitely very helpful.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

School emphasizes professionalism and the administration does things like: not communicating with adjunct professors, late listing of summer schedule, no fall schedule listed as of 4-25-13, keeping outdated advertisements in the school emails. But they accepted me so I am grateful.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is intended to be very rigorous so social life naturally suffers. Also the school if on the expensive side, and there is little available in the scholarship/grant department.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many pros of my University. The first pro of Barry are its small, tight knit group of faculty and students that work together to help each other succeed. Additionally, Barry has a very diverse student body so you can be guaranteed to meet individuals of all walks of life, races, socioeconomic statuses and sexual orientations. The education opportunities are endless which is one of the most important things. The only con i can think of is that graduate school is very expensive so at times it can be difficult to imagine living comfortably when instead all i can imagine is paying loans until i am a grandparent. Barrys program is very rigorous and challenging as well.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

My graduate program is an intense and demanding program which prepares you for real world experiences. This program is especially good because it caters to adults who have already been in the work force, as well as students entering the work force. This program is convenient for those who are working full-time because classes are offered online. Also, students have the option of taking courses in the evenings and on weekends. Overall, the program prepares you for the field of Public Administration by providing you with the knowledge and the skills necessary to excel in the field.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2008

The Pros: Barry University's Biomedical Sciences program was very competitive with its academics. I really grew as a student and my overall science knowledge grew as well. The Cons: The program was somewhat "cookie cutter." They did not take each student as an individual.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

A con of the program at Barry University is that there is limited housing for Graduate students. Barry University has many pros. It offers a beautiful campus. Barry University provides an excellent academic program, knowledgeable professors, an open atmosphere to speak with the administration and the Dean if needed, and an accessible and supportive staff. Also, Barry University provides activities that are geared toward professional development for the graduate student.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program is catered to the working/family student. I have a demanding, full-time job and a young family. The program is flexible, meeting once per week. The down side is the tutition. It is very expensive to attend Barry U.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program has many pros. The professors are excellent in conveying the learning objectives of the class and the classroom environment is comfortable. The only con I could think of is the environment where my campus is located.
