Three options for studying CS at UCSB Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science with emphasis in (pick one): Computational Biology Computational Economics Computational Geography Bachelor of Science in Computer Science College of EngineeringCollege of Letters and Science College of Creative Studies Traditional Computer Science Program. Strong lower division preparation, strong upper division core, many elective choices. Opportunities for undergrad research in 3 rd and 4 th years. Combine CS with Biology, Economics or Geography. Great opportunity for interdisciplinary study. For very advanced students only—requires separate application. Emphasis: independent study, early involvement in research. Best for most students
