Insitution: Westmont College
  Santa Barbara, CA

Majors in Westmont’s Sociology and Anthropology program choose from three tracks: general sociology, human services and cross-cultural. Professors encourage them to be aware of ongoing social inequalities and engaged with local and global communities to work toward social justice and cultural redemption. Students learn about the social nature of economic inequality, globalization, family, race, technology, gender, culture, religion and deviance from a Christian perspective. Majors earn academic credit for internships with agencies addressing social problems. Take advantage of off-campus programs, especially Westmont in San Francisco. Students conduct independent research and present their work at the Western Sociology-Anthropology Undergraduate Research Conference and Westmont’s Student Research Symposium.
