You’re a creative person, a person who loves to honor your God-given talents, whether that’s on a stage, in a studio, behind an instrument or in front of a microphone. If you want to take your passion to the next level, become a student in PBA’s School of Music & Fine Arts.

At PBA, you’ll:

  • Benefit from an array of creative majors such as art education, graphic arts and voice performance, as well as a variety of minors. PBA is one of just three Christian institutions in the nation to offer a dance major.
  • Experience a Christ-centered education.
  • Learn from professors who are committed Christians and who are active professionally.
  • Enjoy a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of just 18.
  • Enhance your knowledge and skills through clubs and organizations like the Ballroom Dance Club or the Songwriters Artist Guild.
  • Experience exciting performance opportunities through more than a dozen vocal, choral and instrumental groups.
  • Participate as a dance major in several dance concerts, showcases and productions, ranging from classical to contemporary. 
  • Graduate ready to start your career or continue your studies at the graduate level.

FACTOIDThe Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, located within walking distance of the PBA campus, is second only to New York’s Lincoln Center in the number of performances it offers every year, often hosting some of the world’s most acclaimed artists and performers


Accomplished Faculty
You’ll learn from faculty who are highly accomplished artists, musicians and performers. One faculty member has artwork on display in the permanent collection of the South Carolina State Museum of Art. Another has performed with musicians Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole and John Secada. And yet another was chosen by Mikhail Baryshnikov to join The American Ballet Theatre, with which she performed for eight years.


Speaking of PBA...


“I lived 700 miles away from West Palm Beach and there were other colleges closer to home that could offer me a quality music education. The PBA difference was faculty with a passion for teaching and students with a passion for learning. It takes both to create a strong learning environment. I cannot imagine having gone to school anywhere else.”
-- Dr. Beth Everett, Assistant Professor, Co-Chair of the Division of Music, Bethel University, McKenzie, Tennessee
