June 1, 2011 (Jackson, MS) - Belhaven University is expanding its online program and giving potential students five more reasons to earn their degree online. Five new degrees that range from associate, bachelors, and masters were added to Belhaven’s online catalogue. A Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Health Administration, Master of Sports Administration, Master of Health Administration, and an Associate of Arts in Business are now available through Belhaven’s online program.

Life’s many pressing needs leave little time to finish or even start a degree, so Belhaven designed its online programs for and around people who cannot be in the classroom everyday like traditional students.

Kevin Russell, Vice President for University Advancement, said, “We are excited about expanding our online offerings because it allows us to reach even more students who are interested in a Christ-centered education but need the flexibility to take their classes at home and on their own time.”

Belhaven online is unlike other online degree programs. The benefits of online learning at Belhaven go farther than just the flexibility of classes. Belhaven is known for offering personal attention from highly qualified faculty and staff while giving each student the individualized attention that most big universities do not give.

Russell adds, “While the programs are academically rigorous, the personal attention students receive during the admission process and once they enroll allows them to focus on their number one priority… obtaining their degree.”

Because Belhaven is a Christian university, the core-curriculum is designed to help students navigate through the world of ideas while fostering a Christian worldview. Belhaven’s 128 years of educational experience and high academic standards point to the excellence a student can expect to receive while pursuing their academic goals.

Belhaven proudly stands among the select Christian colleges and universities that offer a unique general core curriculum encouraging the development of a personal worldview. The university believes a Christian worldview is a key to preparing men and women academically and spiritually to serve Christ Jesus in their careers, in human relationships, and in the world of ideas.

Founded in 1883, Belhaven University now serves over 3,000 students from campuses in Jackson, Memphis, Orlando, Houston, Chattanooga, Atlanta and online, offering traditional undergraduate degrees, graduate and adult degree programs, and online degree programs.
