Where have we been? Where are we going? How do we make sense of where we are right now?
Exploring Ourselves and the World Around Us
Founded on centuries of classical and Christian scholarship, Belhaven University’s Division of Humanities builds bridges that link our past to our future.
Our humanities majors and minors cover the breadth of human learning and how we apply that knowledge.
A Questing Freedom
At Belhaven, you find the intellectual freedom, open heart, and Christian foundation to probe the meaning and complexity of our universal experience.
So go ahead, ask the big questions. These inquiries become our shared quests. Together, we sharpen our critical skills (iron on iron) and shape answers that lead to even bigger and better quests.

Quote from faculty member
"A solid grounding in the Humanities disciplines imparts to our students the knowledge-base to understand the human condition and thus our world. It provides the appraisal, judgment, and critical thinking skills to engage with others. As such, a degree in the humanities not only bestows a substantial foundation in itself, but also the flexibility to pursue careers in virtually any field."
