California Online Masters

California, constituent state of the United States of America. It was admitted as the 31st state of the union on September 9, 1850, and by the early 1960s, it was the most populous U.S. state. No version of the origin of California’s name has been fully accepted, but there is wide support for the contention that it derived from an early 16th-century Spanish novel, Las sergas de Esplandián (“The Adventures of Esplandián”), that described a paradisiacal island full of gold and precious stones called California. The influence of the Spanish settlers of the 18th and 19th centuries is evident in California’s architecture and place names. The capital is Sacramento.

Education In California

According to a master plan that attempts to avoid overlapping roles in the complex system of public colleges and universities, the top one-third of high school graduates are eligible to enroll at one of the campuses of the University of California: Berkeley, Los Angeles, Davis, Riverside, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Irvine, Santa Cruz, and San Diego. The campuses at Santa Cruz and San Diego were established on variations of the Oxford University system of numerous small independent colleges sharing limited central facilities or services. The original campus at Berkeley was founded in 1855 and has remained one of the most prestigious academic communities in the country. The California State University, with numerous branches—including Fresno State University; San Francisco State University; California State University, Fullerton; and California State University, Long Beach—also draws from among the top one-third of high school graduates. High school graduates from the lower two-thirds of their classes attend two-year colleges and often can transfer at the end of that period to one of the four-year campuses. California also has many prestigious private higher-educational institutions, among them Stanford University in Palo Alto, the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, Mills College in Oakland, the Claremont Colleges, California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, and California Institute of the Arts in Valencia.
