Although there are benefits of attending college face-to-face, we recognize that some life situations make that impossible. For instance, those who are already serving in ministry, particularly in rural churches, typically have limited access to theological training and feel unable to move geographically to locations where it is available. Such circumstances make an accredited, online program an attractive option.
The Online Bachelor of Arts in Ministry (EMIN) degree program at Palm Beach University offers a curriculum identical to the on-ground B.A. in Ministry and will prepare to build and grow effective ministries and jump right into a broad variety of ministries upon graduation.
The University's unique guidance focuses on biblical, historical, theological and practical studies. Combined with our thriving community connections, it helps you develop skills to improve the lives of others through your efforts within a church, parachurch, or even through secular agencies.
This program is specially designed for students who want to complete a bachelor’s degree and have a calling to ministry careers or those who have a bachelor’s degree in another discipline who aspire to an advanced degree in ministry (M.Div.).
Our program delivers specific benefits such as:

"I chose PBA because it has the major I was looking for and a reputation for incredible professors that care about their students and are also mentors. I was blown away after just the first day of class; I realized how blessed I am. My perspective of education has changed. Prior, my thoughts of school were it was something that I had to do. Now, I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to do this. I am so excited and full of expectation to see what God has in store for me at PBA."
