Barry University is a private Catholic liberal arts school. It was founded in June 1940 when a group of Adrian Dominican sisters came together with the goal of providing a setting designed for the pursuit of higher education. Since that time, Barry has become one of the leading institutions of post secondary education in Florida and the country.
Located just 5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and nestled on 122 acres of prime real estate, this school has a clear advantage when it comes to scenery and beautiful ambient surroundings. The main campus is only 7 miles from Miami and 14 miles outside of Ft. Lauderdale. Its beautiful campus is not its only or best feature — the University offers more than 100 undergraduate, graduate, professional, and doctoral programs, populated by people of all ages, cultures, faiths and perspectives. As a result, the diverse population of students at various stages of their educational experience adds to an atmosphere geared toward learning, leadership, community service, and academic achievement.
