Cal State University (CSU): Smaller campus, cheaper than a UC, and designed for special majors in mind.

Community College: Affordable, small, campus, 2 year, more 'preparative' learning, many community colleges (usually one in every major city), and learning here makes it easier to transfer to a 4-year college.
