Palm Beach Atlantic University-West Palm Beach

Our Learning Philosophy - PBA goes beyond preparing you to earn a degree. Here, you’ll be prepared for a life of leadership, service and faith. Our graduates will tell you they wouldn’t be where they are without PBA. Someday, we know you’ll say the same. Our Preparation for Life - No matter which of our more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs you choose, you’ll learn in a Christ-centered environment from dedicated men and women of faith who are dedicated to your success. You’ll enhance what you learn in the classroom through real-world experiences, such as internships, “Workship,” study abroad and research opportunities. Our Focus on Faith - We believe PBA is the top Christian college in Florida. While we welcome students of all faiths and those still seeking their spiritual path, Christ is at the center of all we do — from curriculum to mission trips, athletics teams to student organizations. Your education at PBA will help you to strengthen your Christian faith, making you better able to be His hands and feet in this world.
