Louisiana Online Masters

Louisiana, constituent state of United States of America. Area: 52,375 sq mi. Population: (2020) 4,657,757. Capital: Baton Rouge. Louisiana lies on the Gulf of Mexico and is bordered by Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas. It can be divided physically into the Mississippi River flood plain and delta and the low hills of the Gulf of Mexico coastal plain. It is the only U.S. state to be governed under the Napoleonic Code. Indian occupancy in the area probably spanned 16,000 years; at the time of European settlement, the region was inhabited by the Caddo and Choctaw. The city of New Orleans was founded in 1718, and Louisiana became a French crown colony in 1731. Spain controlled the territory from 1762 to 1800; then it passed back to the French. The lands that constitute modern Louisiana were acquired by the U.S. as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 and became the Territory of Orleans in 1804. Louisiana became the 18th U.S. state in 1812. It seceded from the Union in 1861 at the start of the American Civil War and was readmitted in 1868. After World War II Louisiana experienced a more rapid development with the rise of offshore oil and gas drilling. Soybeans are a major agricultural crop; tree farming and shrimp fishing are also important. Petroleum and natural gas are the chief mineral resources.

Louisiana has nearly two dozen public and about 10 private institutions of higher education. Louisiana State University (LSU; 1853), which is both the land-grant and the arts and sciences university, is the keystone of the state system of higher education, with campuses in Baton Rouge, Eunice, Shreveport, and Alexandria. Its former campus, in New Orleans, has become the University of New Orleans (1856). Louisiana Tech University (1894), in Ruston, and the University of Louisiana at Monroe (1931; university status, 1970) are among the other public universities, many of which grew from junior colleges in the 1930s and ’40s. Southern University (1880), in Baton Rouge, with campuses also in Shreveport and New Orleans, is a public historically Black institution, as is Grambling State University (1901), in Grambling. Private historically Black schools include Dillard (1930) and Xavier (1915; Roman Catholic), both in New Orleans. Among other prominent private institutions in the city are Loyola University (1837; Catholic) and Tulane University (1834). Several public and private institutions offer online degree programs.
