The Art and Design Department at Belhaven University seeks to help students develop the creative vision, aesthetic insight, technical skill, intellectual rigor, spiritual discernment, and work ethic necessary for the practice of visual art from a Christian worldview. The department also seeks to provide the campus and local community with opportunities to encounter and engage with works of visual art and their creators. Visual arts majors gain professional experience through participation in public exhibitions, including the senior show, as well as opportunities for internships.
The Art and Design Department offers a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and a minor in both Graphic Design and Visual Art, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Art (Tradigital Studies). Visual arts majors (freshman and transfer) enter as BA candidates and are admitted to BFA standing upon successful completion of foundation courses with the permission of the faculty.
All Art & Design majors must enroll in ART105 - Practicum Seminar each semester that they attend Belhaven University.
