Defy Being Categorized. Embrace Your And. Change the World.

If your answer to “What do you want to do with your life?” is a run-on sentence, you’ll fit in great here. Because real change and true leadership come from people who can imagine a greater future for themselves. People who can think critically and creatively. People who can harness their power and help the world. People like you and your peers at Nova Southeastern University's Halmos College of Arts and Sciences.

NSU faculty will help you understand and care for our planet and its people by embracing the sciences, the arts and a passion for the humanities. Along the way, you’ll create your own unique career pathway that goes beyond the one-degree-equals-one-type-of-job equation. Make your mark in a world of possibilities by joining this generation of leaders.

Bring your aspirations, and leave with a well-rounded set of skills that will give you a career edge in any industry.

I own a graphic design company called Lorea Creative Studio, and I owe this success to my professors. They gave me the knowledge and boost of confidence I needed. And my courses in social media and strategic communication shaped my approach to design.
