There are five optional concentrations you can choose to declare. They will be noted on your transcripts as an additional specialty. They are a way to structure your elective courses to dive further into a special area of study. You do not have to choose a concentration, but you have the option to choose from:
- Change Leadership
- College Teaching of Communication
- Digital Media Strategies
- Global Leadership
- Servant Leadership
- Strategic & Organizational Communication
Our Master's in Communication & Leadership program challenges you to harness communication on all levels and in all types of organizations, whether through a crisis communication plan, an internal strategic plan or a social media strategy. You will learn to analyze your audience, understand your influence and leverage various platforms to communicate your message to become a more effective, ethical leader.
Our Master's in Organizational Leadership program challenges you to formulate your own leadership practice, allowing you to lead change, resolve conflict and motivate groups within your organization. We focus on diversity, global strategy and organizational behavior. You can take elective courses within either program to fulfill your elective credit requirements.
Coursework must be distinctively graduate level by the transfer institution and must have been taken within the last five years. A minimum grade of a B (P grades must be defined as B or better) must be earned. Courses previously applied to a completed degree are not transferable to the student's current program.
The Course Experience
We believe the best learning is experiential and occurs in the context of community. The immersion is designed to be taken early in your graduate degree journey so that you can come to campus, meet fellow classmates, get to know faculty and ground yourself in the sense of what it means to be a Zag.
However, we understand not everyone has the flexibility to come to campus for the immersion, therefore we are offering the required COML 599 immersion course online twice a year, once during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The Student Services team is available to answer your questions and connect you to the resources you need. You will also be assigned a faculty advisor to help you meet your academic goals.
Online students have access to all of Gonzaga's resources including:

*Tuition rates subject to change.
**Does not include additional fees or travel for immersions.
