Our Passions Drive Our Creative and Scientific Pursuits

At the Nova Southeastern University Halmos College of Arts and Sciences, we’re driven by accomplishments. It’s how we structure our experiential learning curriculum, and it’s how we measure our efforts.

NSU faculty are leaders in their fields. As a student, you have an opportunity to work directly with them on research, news-making endeavors, artists’ showcases and community impact initiatives that actually make a difference in our world.

Our Research and Portfolios Launch Careers

Because our curriculum focuses on giving you real-world, hands-on experience, you’ll graduate with skills and a body of work that set you apart for the rest of your career. Our community connections and partnerships with organizations help you and all of our graduates make a name for yourselves, regardless of what pathway you choose.

Sociology was the catalyst for my career path. Exploring the complexities of environmental impact and food insecurity has taken me from Veracruz, Mexico, to Knoxville, Tennessee, to my current work as an attorney and social justice advocate here in Miami.


Committed to Community

NSU Sharks can dominate solo, but we prefer the company of others who share our passions.

That’s why we’ve created a learning environment and campus life that foster community. It’s personal faculty attention. It’s a group of peers who share your successes and learning experiences. The friends, mentors and connections you make here will last a lifetime.
