Founded in 1911 in Santa Barbara, California, Santa Barbara City College grants associate-level degrees and professional certifications. It has some of the widest variety of coursework of any institution of its kind, including fields like alcohol and drug counseling, medical sonography, the Hebrew language, and even a unique Marine Diving Technology program. SBCC is also known around the region for its fully certified automotive programs, an innovative School for Media Arts, and one of the nation’s few centers for cancer-related information management. Career-exploration tools such as EUREKA, as well as direct personal advisement, are consistently on-hand to help students. In fact, SBCC does such a good job in four key areas related to ensuring positive student-to-work transitions and learning outcomes that the Aspen Institute named it the 2013 co-winner of its Prize for Community College excellence. And the wealth of opportunities for involvement outside the classroom rivals that of the nation’s biggest universities: clubs devoted to archery, computer science, theatre, hip-hop and the vegan lifestyle all thrive here! More than just a community college, Santa Barbara City College is a reliable gateway to a secure future.
