Serving All Undergraduates
Every undergraduate at UC Santa Barbara will take at least one course in the College of Letters & Science. Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts -- our students do it all!
Many of our students have the opportunity to do hands-on research with a professor, giving them practical knowledge and skills that take them beyond the classroom.
UCSB's location, perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, can't be beat. We encourage students to work hard and take time to enjoy their stunning surroundings.
Here's what's happening in the college.
