Berkeley offers 106 Bachelor's degrees, 88 Master's degrees, 97 research-focused doctoral programs and 31 professionally focused graduate degrees.
In 1866, the private College of California purchased the land comprising the current Berkeley campus.

UCSF manages the UCSF Medical Center, which is the top hospital in California.
