Honors Program

You want to do more than just attend college. You want to be challenged — and to challenge others. You want to live and learn in a community of scholars. If that’s the case, consider the Honors Program at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Florida’s top Christian college.

Our Program

The Frederick M. Supper Honors Program brings together the books, speeches, music, art, architecture, films and ideas that will initiate you into the “Great Conversation.” You’ll discover its wisdom and thus become a better leader, scholar, Christian, citizen and employee. 

You’ll benefit from:

  • A distinctive curriculum — that encourages intellectual contemplation and discussion
  • Insightful professors — who will share a Christian worldview
  • Small classes — set in a seminar format to better facilitate dialogue and discussion
  • Thought-provoking reading — that will help you get to the heart of the questions most important to you and to the world

As an honors student, you may study at Oxford University through the Oxford Scholars Semester. This program offers plenty of opportunities for you to learn in England’s rich historical setting. You may also participate in other study abroad opportunities offered through PBA.

Our Philosophy

We believe in nurturing your love of learning and your desire to be of service to the Lord. Our members are seen as leaders in the PBA community. We encourage you to develop a thoughtful and insightful Christian worldview — and challenge you to live an examined life

Our Community

You will be part of a community of learners from all majors who come together to challenge, encourage and support one another in your pursuit of wisdom and knowledge. Your faculty are dedicated Christians who embrace their role as teacher and mentor — for life.

Our House

The Weyenberg Honors House, located in the center of the campus, houses about 50 honors students. Daily, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy tea and conversation. A professor serves as mentor and master of the house, which includes a beautiful courtyard with picnic tables and a barbeque grill. While not all honors students live in the house, it is the center of activity for classes and social functions.

Our Alumni

Our graduates have gone on to have success in some of the nation’s top graduate, law, medical and seminary schools in the world, including Duke, Oxford, Wheaton, Wake Forest, Brown and North Carolina. They’re also successful in careers ranging from business to education, communications to politics and the law. 

Speaking of PBA...

“Life in the Honors Program resembles British residential colleges and early American colleges. Classes are small.  Students read and discuss primary sources rather than textbooks. They take ownership in their education and motivate one another and themselves. Our students graduate well prepared for graduate schools and for careers.”

--Dr. Tom St. Antoine, director of The Frederick M. Supper Honors Program
