At Belhaven University, formerly Belhaven College, the Bachelor of Arts in Political Science introduces students to the study of political thought, political behavior, and political institutions, all from the perspective of a Christian worldview. We take care to provide a foundation of knowledge in all the major subfields of political study while designing our political science program to maintain a focus on the ultimate goal of this degree track —establishing justice in civil government.

For students seeking a pre-law degree, a political science major is often the route of choice. This accredited degree program seeks to develop the student's ability to understand and become involved in the political process, while providing an excellent foundation for legal and other graduate studies. Belhaven's Department of History and Political Science offers internships in various government offices and other public policy areas, leading students down career paths in education, law, church, government, media, travel and business.
