Barry University prides itself on offering all of our students’ personal attention through small class sizes. This commences from the moment of enrollment at Barry and continues through to graduation. Within the Graphic Design Program, the ratio is one faculty member to every fifteen students. This allows our faculty the opportunity to spend valuable one-on-one time with each design student both inside and outside of the classroom. When issues arise outside of the classroom, it is always easy to find a faculty member to assist you.

In addition to small class sizes and a committed faculty, Barry also offers you the latest in creative resources. Currently, we have two state-of-the-art Macintosh labs available to all Fine Art majors. Each of these computers is configured with the newest versions of Adobe creative software. An array of both large and small format printers will allow you to see all of your design projects come to fruition.
