Choosing a major does not have to feel like you are leaving some part of you behind. At Belhaven, we believe choosing a major should be a celebration of your talents, not a choice between them—and that’s why we offer the Double Major Promise. This promise allows incoming freshmen to double major and should you need the extra year to finish—the 5th year tuition is on us.

Love to dance and have a heart for teaching—double major in dance and education. Can’t decide between chemistry and biology—do both. See yourself overseas and in business—board the plane with a degree in International Studies and Business.choose any two from the list on the right, and if you want two degrees,

Choose any two of our undergraduate degrees, and if you want two degrees,like a BA and a BS—that is included in the promise too.

Avoiding Pitfalls of College Pricing

  1. Multiply Correctly.
  2. Know what’s in Room & Board.
  3. Watch out for Fees.

Only 19% of public university students graduate in four years. If comparing public university vs private, multiply private by four years and the public by five years.

For many universities, Room and Board does not include a meal plan, be clear on the difference.

Watch out for fees. Fees can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars.
