Summer Residence Program

If you live out-of-state, or if your work and family obligations will not allow sufficient time to attend courses throughout the academic year, the Summer Residence Program may be an ideal option for you.

The Summer Residence Program is designed to meet the needs of students who can best complete the PhD program in concentrated 12-week summer semesters and one to two week spring intersession concentration periods (Generally a week in May before summer term). Students will complete 12 to 15 program credits annually.

During the period between summers and the intersession concentration periods, students will complete papers and assignments and will be in continual contact with their professors and advisor.

The dissertation portion of this program will be completed at your home site.

We are currently offering this program at the following locations in Florida:

  • Barry University‚Äôs main campus in Miami Shores (Begins in fall or spring)

Summer program offers full doctoral experience

During the PhD in Nursing program, you will have a full doctoral experience during your time on campus. You will read, study, engage in faculty/student discussions, and have the opportunity to socialize. All facilities at the University are air-conditioned, including on-campus housing. Facilities such as the library, computer laboratory, Learning Center, sport facilities, and swimming pool are open and available for the summer session. Cultural activities and sport activities in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area are readily available just 15 to 20 minutes from campus. Your summer experience and spring concentration will be full and rewarding.
