UC’s are geared towards research and preparation for graduate school. If you are planning on going to graduate school or taking a major such as law, dentistry, medicine and health then a UC is the way to go.
CSU’s are geared towards real life applications and career preparation. If you are planning to go into the work-force after you receive a bachelors then a CSU may be the direction you go. Also if you want to stay local a CSU may be the school for you because they have many more campuses around the state. Generally CSU's have a smaller class size and are taught by faculty as well.
