Barry University's liberal arts focus emphasizes a well-rounded education, as evidenced by our wide variety of majors, minors, specializations, and elective courses. Your academic advisor will assist you in developing your schedule each semester as you work towards reaching your personal and professional goals.In the Catholic intellectual tradition, integration of study, reflection and action inform the intellectual life. Faithful to this tradition, a Barry education and university experience foster individual and communal transformation where learning leads to knowledge and truth, reflection leads to informed action, and a commitment to social justice leads to collaborative service.Founded in 1940 by the Adrian Dominican Sisters, Barry University's growth throughout the years has been shaped by their core values. Originally founded as Barry College for Women, Barry has grown into a coeducational university that is one of the leading centers for education in South Florida. While academics will be at the core of your time at Barry, the friendships and experiences that you will gain through campus life will round out your experience. You'll find a wide variety of organizations and events that bring together the diverse interests and passions of our Barry family.
