Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration program is truly a blend of the sophisticated academic world, the practical and technologically dependent career world, and the eternal world of Christian faith.

Graduate School of Education Mission Statement

Teacher As Servant Leader
Learning to Teach – Teaching to Serve

The Belhaven University Graduate School of Education seeks to produce not only effective professional educators but also develop concerned, compassionate educators who value each student’s life and who are dedicated to helping all students learn and fulfill his or her God-given potential. The School of Education’s goal is the development of Teachers as Servant Leaders, professionals committed to transforming teaching, learning, and schooling – professionals dedicated to creating positive learning environments where students learn the virtues and skills necessary to become responsible citizens.

The faculty in the Belhaven School Graduate of Education believe that well-prepared teachers, building administrators, and district leaders serving as professional educators are committed to the profession and in helping to improve the educational environment and our schools. At Belhaven, we challenge teachers to stretch themselves as effective educators, to take the lead in their schools, and to develop a heart of service in their communities and to make a difference in the engagement and learning of the all the children they teach as well as impact each child’s life.

Belhaven University has a long tradition of academic excellence in preparing teachers. Originally founded as a woman’s college, Belhaven’s first “professional degree” was in teacher education. Since that time, the University has produced thousands of teachers who have filled classrooms in Mississippi and many other states. Building on this tradition, Belhaven offers two graduate Master’s Degree programs online: the Master of Education (M.Ed.) and the Master of Education in Reading Literacy (M.Ed.-R/L). Each degree is designed to meet different educational leadership needs. The Master of Education meets the needs of professional teachers who already are certified and desire a graduate specialty in elementary or secondary education. The M.Ed. allows the professional teacher to take one of three areas of emphasis:

  1. M.Ed. – Curriculum and Instruction,
  2. Preparation for National Board Techer Certification, and
  3. Educational Technology.
The Master’s Degree in Reading Literacy (M.Ed.-RL) is intended for those who hold a valid standard teaching license and are currently teaching in a school. The M.Ed.-RL in reading can advance teachers into supervisory and leadership roles in education.

While serving different audiences, all degree programs acknowledge the expertise, experience, and needs of adult learners. Programs also foster inquiry into the nature of learning and the effects of teaching, transfer of theory to practice, self-directed learning and reflection, collegial interaction with peers, commitment to innovation and change, and the development of leadership skills and professional efficacy.

Belhaven offers a challenging educational experience for new and practicing teachers as well as aspiring and current administrators who desire to enhance their knowledge, skills, and practice. The Graduate School of Education faculty and staff are committed to preparing professional educators who can provide distinctive Christian leadership and service in the classrooms, in the schools, at the district levels, and within diverse communities.
