You want a high-quality education, one that not only prepares you for your future, but also provides you with a Christian perspective. You’ll find that through the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science department at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
PBA is one of the few schools in the country to offer medicinal and biological chemistry majors at the bachelor’s degree level and one of few Christian institutions to offer a biology concentration in marine biology and oceanography minor.
When it comes to location, there’s no better place to study the natural sciences. You’ll benefit from our close proximity to Lake Worth Lagoon, the Atlantic Ocean, the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee. In fact, one of North America's great coral reefs is a short boat ride from Palm Beach Atlantic. The area teems with life, including sea turtles gliding across the ocean floor and nesting on the beaches.

At PBA, you will:
Your faculty members have many distinctions. They’re well-known scholars, highly published authors and Christians who will share the Christian worldview in their classrooms. All of our professors — no matter the discipline — have distinguished themselves in their fields. One biology professor even has a fish parasite named in his honor and was on a segment of the Animal Planet series River Monsters.
"Health fields, pharmacy, pharmacology, biochemistry and biotechnology are where the most demand is today in science. Our program prepares students to be successful in these areas.”
