What I liked most about Barry University was the professors' understanding that a large majority of the students were full-time working adults. The professors made the classes bearable as well as enjoyable all while instilling a positive learning environment. Having my degree will be an example for others to follow, such as subordinates and even my children. Having a degree allows for more opportunities and provides more benefits for you and your family."
Sergeant with the Palm Bay Police Department
Bachelor of Science in Administration
I wanted to get an IT degree from Barry University as it is military friendly, especially for veterans. Getting a degree after retiring from the military has been one of my best accomplishments—showing my family and kids that it's not too late to get a degree and that they should pursue it after high school. It's hard when you work and have a family. It's tough but possible. I look forward to bigger and better things in life, thanks to Barry University and all the staff."

Bachelor of Public Administration
I decided to go back and finish the degree I had started 20 years prior. It was something that I knew I wanted to do but at some point, along the way I had given up on. When I learned about the program through Barry, I knew it was perfect for me. The professors understand that many of the students are working professionals and they help to set you up for success. I was able to apply for a position that required a Bachelor's degree during my last semester. I am now the Jacksonville, FL Chapter Director for Blue Star Families, a non-profit that supports military families across the country. None of this would have been possible without my degree from Barry."
