Scope of Program:
Belhaven University is a small, Christian university that requires all students to take its Worldview curriculum, which combines history, literature, career and life planning, art history and Christian theology and thought.
Graphic Design students may choose either the Digital and Print Media emphasis or the Web and Interactive Media Emphasis. Students in both tracks complete coursework in computer graphics, graphic design lab, typography, history of graphic design, design to web integration and portfolio and résumé development. Digital and Print Media students also focus on print design, print layout and digital imaging. Web and Interactive Media students concentrate on HTML and CSS programming, Web design, animated and interactive Web design, user interface theories and interactive prototyping.
Art, need-based and academic merit scholarships are available. Belhaven University offers "church matching" grants up to $500 if the applicant's church offers financial support. Mississippi residents may also apply for state tuition assistance grants.
