Students of the College of Creative Studies are required to bring something new into existence. Whether it is scientific research or an original work, the College provides the resources, guidance, and research opportunities necessary to realize this goal. By offering students the freedom to deeply explore the rich academic environment of UC Santa Barbara, the College not only helps advance the University's mission of teaching, but permits incredibly bright students to join with faculty as junior colleagues in the creation of new knowledge. This is where the College gets the word “creative” in Creative Studies.
