    PBA is a Christian university that equips students to lead fulfilling lives through learning, leadership and service. The West Palm Beach campus offers 50+ day undergraduate majors, evening, graduate and professional programs. The Orlando Campus serves adult students with accelerated bachelor's and master's programs.

    LOCATION | You will study and live on a 29- acre campus in the heart of West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach and only minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. PBA’s urban location puts internships, part-time jobs, volunteer service and service learning opportunities nearby as well as beaches, restaurants, recreation and shopping.

    ACADEMICS | The Supper Honors Program curriculum complements any major by replacing standard courses with an overview of the humanities designed to examine the ideas from human history through a Christian worldview. Supper Honors graduates have careers in law, politics, business, the sciences and communication fields. The Titus Center for Franchising is the only academic program of its type that combines coursework and internships in the fast-paced field of franchising in the U.S. and internationally. The Rinker Center for Experiential Learning offers study aboard and serve abroad options across the globe.

    FAITH | At PBA, you will make friends whose values and beliefs are similar to yours and establish relationships that will last a lifetime. You also will be challenged spiritually to live out your faith through a variety of campus programs. Our signature community service program, Workship, equips you to respond to human needs with Christ-like action in the community and the world.

    CAREER AND CALLING | Last year, 66 percent of our graduates gained valuable experience through an internship, field experience, nursing clinical, practicum or student teaching placement. These experiences help you develop the confidence and skills needed to succeed in your profession and in life, whether you enter the workforce after graduation or go on to graduate school.

    VALUE AND AFFORDABILITY | PBA is consistently ranked by Princeton Review and U.S. News among the top colleges in the Southeastern United States. We make the PBA-style of education affordable by awarding over $3 million in endowed and annual scholarships every year.
