UC Academics: A World-Class University
In the relatively short period since it was chartered
(1868), the University of California has become the premier public
university in the United States and earned a place among the most
distinguished institutions of higher learning anywhere.
UC is the principal point of access for people of talent and ambition,
a force from which California's economic prowess and strength derive,
one of the world's great intellectual treasure houses, the repository
of much of our cultural heritage, a cauldron of discovery, a marketplace
of ideas — in short, one of the greatest centers of learning
the world has ever known.
Campus Academics Programs
provides links to the academics pages of individual campus web sites,
campus catalogs and calendars, and information about graduate studies
around the UC system.
This web site is also an all-campuses portal to specific areas of
study in engineering and computer
science, physical and biological
sciences, arts and humanities,
and social sciences.
In all, UC campuses offer programs in more than 150 disciplines
— many of which are ranked among the top 10 nationally.
UC is also expanding its summer instruction opportunities —

classes at UC campuses. Other UC opportunities take faculty
and students beyond the campuses — to our
nation's capital and to countries
around the globe.
In addition to these undergraduate and graduate programs, UC provides
training in a number of important professions, including business,
and health, law, and other
fields such as architecture, urban planning, social welfare, international
relations and journalism.
The University of California is also a center for lifelong learning
and continuing professional development. UC
Extension, one of the world's largest providers of continuing
education, enrolls 400,000 Californians in 17,000 different courses
