In June 1940, a 40 acre tract of lush, tropical vegetation located in Miami Shores was transformed into one of the leading centers of education in South Florida. In the years since Barry first opened its doors, the campus has expanded to more than 122 acres and 17 locations throughout Florida. The Barry University community is comprised of nearly 9,000 students, served by more than 2,100 administrators, faculty members and support staff from a wide range of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Healthcare education in the Dominican intellectual tradition has been a part of Barry University since its early beginnings in 1940. The College of Health Sciences (“CHS”) is one of two Colleges and seven Schools that form the University. CHS was formed in 2008 when the School of Natural and Health Sciences and the School of Nursing merged. As one college, students are able to learn from experts in a variety of health care specialties. We have created a vibrant academic environment for you to support a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach to health care.
