Physics UCSD Computational Physics

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a freshman at a community college in California. I'm planning to transfer to UC San Diego later because of their undergraduate program- B.S. in Physics with specialization in Computational Physics.
    I really like science and it's my dream to become a scientist but I want to have better opportunities to find a good job later as well. My plan is to get an associate degree in Computer science from my community college while passing units for the transfer because many units are already covered and I only have to pass an extra 15 units to get the degree.
    But the problem is that I can't decide for sure. I'm not sure if it's a good idea. I need to hear from people with more experience.

    I myself have my undergrad degree in Computational Physics, I have to say I'm skeptical that a university would accept community college credits in computer science/math or physics.
