General Information About the College
Healthcare education in the Dominican intellectual tradition has been a part of Barry University since its early beginnings in 1940. Our College features nationally recognized undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in a variety of health care specialties. By using multiple classroom innovations, technology-rich curricula and small group discussions as appropriate, our diverse faculty members encourage active learning and strive to produce graduates who are committed to lifelong learning, providing healthcare, and promoting social justice for all.
