Belhaven University, formerly Belhaven College, is a Christian liberal arts university dedicated to excellence in Christian higher education. Situated in the heart of one of Jackson's most beautiful historic neighborhoods, Belhaven offers a residential campus within minutes of fine dining, good shopping, and a thriving arts community. At Belhaven, a long-standing history of excellence dates back to the College's founding in 1883. Dr. Roger Parrott, President of the College, carries on Belhaven's rich legacy with a Christian curriculum centered on the biblical worldview. This unique Worldview Curriculum seamlessly intertwines history, literature, art, music, and philosophy into a chronological core curriculum for all incoming freshmen and sophomores. Belhaven University has received national recognition for its academic programs and affordability, and the College has earned regional Accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Furthermore, Belhaven is one of just 30 schools in the U.S. to be nationally accredited in all four of the arts: dance, music, theatre, and visual art.
