Belhaven University Reviews

23 reviews
Coursework is very engaging and requires students to have a lot of drive and initiative. Units require research and lots of resources in order to receive high marks. The graduate-level courses are pretty much self-teaching. The information is provided, but it is to you to interpret and produce what is being asked of you.

LOVE THIS UNIVERSITY! This is a Christian university based on Christian values. The professors are awesome, helpful and always communicative. Every course involves scripture that relates to each lesson.
Belhaven has one of the best programs around. I especially love their hands on approach to working with the students as well as their multifacted delivery of materials. You have text, video, eBooks with audio capability, regular text, and then you can even zoom with your professors.
