When you choose a college, you’re not just choosing where to learn, you’re choosing where to live. From the moment you step on PBA’s campus, you’ll feel it: things are different here. Come explore campus for yourself. Not only will you be able to experience the excellence and excitement that radiates throughout our community, our downtown location and breezy beaches are steps away too. You’ll know you belong here because you’ve seen this place for yourself.  

Thanks to my Oscar winning professor at PBA, I've been able to get professional first-hand insights and techniques in the world of film, making my program extremely practical and applicable to what I want to do after graduation.
