From Belhaven University

Belhaven University stands among select Christian colleges and universities with national influence and has been repeatedly named one of “America’s 100 Best College Buys.” The University offers over 70 areas of study including academic majors and concentrations across a full spectrum of disciplines.

Located in the capitol city of Jackson, Mississippi, Belhaven has achieved the distinction of being among only 36 universities nationally accredited in each of the major arts—music, theater, visual art and dance.
