In my experience, compilers are taught over three semesters or so: lexing/parsing is one course (or rolled into a prerequisite), the standard compilers is the second, and advanced (graduate-level) compilers is the third course.

Berkeley just has CS164 [1] which is all in one. They haven't taught a graduate compiler section in years (decades?). Stanford is on the quarter system. They have an even more compressed single quarter compiler class, CS143 [2], but they also have a graduate advanced topics class, CS243 [3] as well. Moreover, CS243 doesn't require 143 as a prerequisite. As an aside, Berkeley is very strong at computer architecture (RISC, RISC-V, ...) while Stanford is very strong at compilers (Aiken, Lam, Ullman, Hennessy, ...)
