Palm Beach Atlantic University

Palm Beach Atlantic is a distinctly interdenominational Christian university with some 48 undergraduate majors (including nursing). Graduate degrees in business, leadership, psychology, divinity, pharmacy, and nursing practice are offered. Located in the Palm Beaches of southeast Florida, PBA is an ideal place to grow and explore your faith with young people of many races, nationalities and creeds. Workship is Palm Beach Atlantic University's award-winning community service program that responds to human needs with Christ-like action in the community and the world. Through community service, students can discern their vocation and develop a lifelong habit of servant leadership. In 1984, PBA established American Free Enterprise Day to honor individuals who have embraced and endorsed the principles of the free enterprise system. American Free Enterprise Day is celebrated every November on campus with a special event attended by community leaders, faculty, staff and students. The aim is to develop in each of our students an appreciation for the unique American achievement in its many dimensions: social, political, economic, moral, legal and religious. In addition, PBA has established five Centers of Excellence, best defined as areas of focus that allow select and highly motivated students to gain special knowledge and expertise in specific fields. The Centers of Excellence are: The LeMieux Center for Public Policy, the Gregory Center for Medical Missions, the Rinker Center for Experiential Learning, the Center for Integrative Science Learning and the Titus Center for Franchising.
