Hello everyone.
I am a community college student, and ready for transfer for 4 year university. I have recently got accepted to both UCSB and CSULB. Now, I am currently debating whether is better choice for me.
My major is math and I want to become a teacher in high school and college.
I know both colleges are good and wonderful. But, I wanted to know your guys' opinions on which school is better?
I really need your advises :)
Q1. which college is better to get a job after graduate? (specially, teaching)
Q2. What are the pros and cons of these two schools?

thank you.

    If you want to teach college, UCs tend to be favored for pre PhD students.

    If you want to teach high school, either should be fine, but you need a teaching credential in addition to a BA/BS in math.
