majors and Programs
Westmont's History Department provides breadth of content in the spirit of the liberal arts, as well as the depth in research training necessary to be a competent historian. Courses emphasize critical reading, discussion, and thoughtful analysis of differing interpretations. To provide additional research experience, history majors complete courses in historical method and bibliography and research which require them to work in a major research library. Students who wish to spend a semester abroad might consider the international studies track.
Faculty encourage majors to develop skills of the trade, including the traditional tools of foriegn language and geography, and the increasingly important expertise in statistics.
