Program Retention and Degree Completion

/

The following chart summarizes data for admissions, program retention, and degree completion for the Gonzaga Philosophy M.A. program.  Due to changes in the structure, administration, and financial aid offerings of the program, statistics since 2004 give the best picture of program retention and degree completion rates.

The program is designed for completion in 2-3 years, including summers, though students often opt to take longer.  University rules specify that students must complete the degree within a 5-year period after admission.  There are two key exceptions to this limit: (1) it is possible to request and receive a 1-year extension to complete the degree; (2) some students request temporary leave from the program for personal or professional reasons.  The average degree-completion time for students in the Gonzaga Philosophy M.A. program since 2004 is 3.6 years.

Students who do not complete the degree leave the program for a variety of reasons, the most typical of which are personal, health-related, and changes in academic or career plans.
