UCSB's CCS program

Uploaded: Dec 11, 2018
(Written by Lori McCormick)

The University of California at Santa Barbara’s College of Creative Studies, established in 1967, is celebrating their 50th anniversary this academic year.

Imagine a small cohort of highly engaged, academically like-minded students within a large UC campus. The College of Creative Studies offers eight areas of academic focus: Art, Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computing, Mathematics, Music Composition, Physics, and Writing & Literature. In 2020 they will add a Marine Science major.

With only about 400 students in their college, students get to know their professors and classmates in addition to hands-on experiential learning. The added beauty is that the College of Creative Studies is on campus at UCSB and students in the CCS program can take classes outside of their program in addition to having the same resources available on campus as other students.

If you are looking for a smaller sized college but the UC system appeals to you, visit UCSB’s College of Creative Studies’ website for more information.

I went to CCS in the 1970's and highly recommend it. I was an art major but their science programs are excellent. Plus you get to go to college on the beach!
