About Westmont College

Two hours north of Los Angeles, the city of Santa Barbara features stunning views of ocean and mountains as well as traditional Spanish architecture and a lively downtown shopping area.

Nestled on the edge of all this is Westmont College, a small, private, Christian school offering traditional liberal arts academics and an engaging student life.

Westmont’s majors include such academic subject areas as Biology, English, European Studies, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy and Religion. Fine and performing arts programs encompass Visual Art, Music and Theatre. Several professional majors are also available in such fields as Computer Science, Education, Kinesiology and Physical Education.

A spirited student life community completes the Westmont experience. Since it is a religious school, there are religious organizations and activities including a campus ministry. Additionally, there is a student literary magazine, a theatre performance group as well as on-campus concerts, dances and coffee shops. There are also off-campus community service opportunities.

Freshman admission to Westmont requires completion of certain core high school courses.

Overall Rating

Westmont is a one of a kind school with a welcoming atmosphere. I have loved getting to know my professors personally, in all different types of classes. The biggest class I have been in is 40 people and I was even in a class with 7 people that helped me make the most out of my class. I can tell that my professors really care about me, and as an out of state student, I feel very welcomed by students as well. I would highly recommend visiting campus because it is an extremely beautiful campus and there is nothing quite like visiting and seeing everything for yourself.
