Palm Beach Atlantic University's South Florida location makes it an ideal place to study marine biology, which is the study of organisms in the ocean or other marine bodies of water. Marine life helps to support recreation and tourism, globally. And, at a basic level, it assists in determining the nature of our planet. Enriching courses are offered such as, Physical Oceanography and Ecology, along with a Christ-centered learning perspective taught by an outstanding faculty. PBA is one of few Christian institutions to offer a biology concentration in marine biology.
