Undergraduate Academic Programs

The heart and soul of NSU is our academic power. The university has earned national and international reputations for the quality of its more than 150 degree programs. Few other universities span NSU’s 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 master’s and doctoral programs in law, medicine, nursing, dentistry, business, oceanography, psychology, education, computer and information sciences, and more.

All of this academic power is brought to you by exceptional, always-accessible faculty members who are committed to your success. They maintain an open-door policy when it comes to helping you, and the support NSU gives them to teach in new ways—in and out of the classroom and research lab—means that you’re on an academic exploration, always grounded in real-world experience and focused on outcomes.

Classes are small, so your professors get to know you, your strengths, and the areas where you may need a little extra help. And since our faculty members are active in their fields, both in research and with professional connections, you will learn from the people who not only know the real world, they’re helping to shape it.
