Sociology & Anthropology

Deane Hall

The Sociology-Anthropology Department offers students the richness of a multi-disciplinary study of human behavior. Students have the opportunity to take courses in sociology, anthropology, and social work. While providing our majors with a common foundation in the concepts, theories, and methods of the three disciplines, our majors may tailor their course of study around the three major tracks that we offer: the general sociology track, the human services track, and the cross-cultural track. Our majors give presentations at the Western Sociology-Anthropology Undergraduate Research Conference held at Santa Clara University as well as the Westmont Student Research Symposium. All graduating majors are eligible to receive the Outstanding Student and/or the Praxis Awards.
