STEM for the Win

Career opportunities in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — are rapidly growing across the United States. Join our STEM community and learn how to provide scientific insight to help our world with a financially rewarding career.

Our STEM departments encourage community among our students as we recognize that the future of science is team-based and interdisciplinary. Many of our students double major or minor in other STEM fields, setting them up for diverse opportunities.

Our expert faculty members consistently develop new cutting-edge programs that meet innovation and carry it forward. Our graduates are also pushing the boundaries of these fields by excelling in their careers and in graduate studies.

Earn Your Nursing Degree at Belhaven

Because the STEM field is closely related to health care, our faculty members are also linked to the School of Nursing. Our professors advise and instruct pre-nursing majors, ensuring they have a great start to their Belhaven journey.

We offer two ways to earn the nursing bachelor’s degree. Students new to the field can earn a BSN in four years on our traditional campus. Nurses with an associate degree or diploma in nursing can earn it in two through our online RN/BSN program. Your advisor can help you with course information and scholarship options.
