As a private, not-for-profit, research university, NSU offers personalized attention and intimate class sizes coupled with the powerful academic resources of a well-rounded university. NSU has earned a national and international reputation for the quality of its more than 150 degree programs. And few other universities span this range of education on a single campus: from an award-winning early childhood education center to a respected college prep school, from innovative undergraduate degree programs to rigorous master’s and doctoral programs in law, medicine, nursing, dental medicine, business, oceanography, psychology, education, computer and information sciences, and more.  

All of this academic power is taught by exceptional, accessible faculty members who are committed to your success.  NSU gives them freedom to teach in new ways, both in and out of the classroom and in research labs. This means that you’re on an academic exploration, always grounded in real-world experience and focused on career outcomes. Classes are small, so your professors get to know you, your strengths and the places where you could use a little extra help.  And since our faculty members are active in their fields, both in research and professional connections, you learn from the people who not only know the real world – they're helping to shape it.

Students have access to modern, state-of-the-art facilities, and cutting-edge technology, as well as a variety of delivery options. Most of our programs are offered at our main campus in Fort Lauderdale, but many are also offered online, or at one of our Regional Campuses.
