South Florida has many options when it comes to higher education. There’s a big private school with a national profile — the University of Miami — and a big public one — Florida International University. There are also two of the nation’s largest community colleges, Miami Dade College and Broward College. Wedged between those giants are schools such as Nova Southeastern University, St. Thomas University, Barry University and Florida Memorial University. These smaller schools have specializations and aim to provide a different experience for students, both local and out-of-state, that they might not find at bigger institutions.
