For students looking for ministry degrees, Belhaven University offers the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies, which provides students with the background and skills necessary to adequately interpret the Bible as the authoritative rule of faith and practice. Based on the standards of reformed theology, biblical data is presented in consideration of recent study and discovery, and students are encouraged to investigate the biblical text for themselves as the source of doctrine and the guide for conduct. Students in this department are expected to be involved in ministry during the duration of their studies.
Since Belhaven has a Christian curriculum based on the biblical worldview, it is an encouraging and challenging place for students to grow. Each student chooses his or her concentration: Pre-seminary, Christian Ministries or Family Studies. Depending upon the area of study, relevant Bible and ministry courses are offered for all three areas of ministry training. Numerous and exciting internships are available to Belhaven students throughout their college career, making Belhaven graduates successful in a wide range of ministry related careers and graduate study fields.
