Palm Beach Atlantic University is developing online versions of two of its popular degree programs for adult students -- a Master of Science in Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
Provost Dr. Joseph A. Kloba said that an online course format provides working, adult students greater access to further their education while continuing their employment and family obligations. Dr. Kloba noted that the leadership degree would be the first online graduate program to be offered at PBA. Both degree programs are currently offered in the traditional classroom format at Palm Beach Atlantic’s campuses in West Palm Beach and Orlando.
