Belhaven's Bachelor of Arts in Art program stands out in the sea of art and design colleges. The nationally accredited visual arts program seeks to instill in students the creative vision, intellectual rigor, technical skill, aesthetic insight, spiritual discernment, and work ethic necessary for the practice of visual art informed by a Christian worldview. The program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
