Student & Graduate Reviews

3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is extremely expensive and the practicums available aren't always super pertinent to what individuals want to do specifically. However, the professors are so genuine, transparent, and willing to give you all the help in the world. I feel so supported. My nerves are always calmed by the disarming and well-experienced staff. They make me feel like I can achieve anything I put my mind to.

The pros of my grad program are the great professors that are eager to assist me in my development. A con is the lack of financial aid offered by the school/

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2016

While I am only one year into the program, looking to finish coursework and comprehensive exams in the Fall with my eye on a thesis by the Spring, I cannot begin to express the drastic difference between the MA program at Gonzaga vis-à-vis my last graduate degree program (which I finished). Aside from the closer social group among most of the graduate students, there is a greater amount of collegiality and understanding, shared by faculty and students alike. Further, there is so much to do on- and off-campus: the surrounding Spokane area has so much to offer in dining and entertainment, as well as myriad activities either indoor or out, the latter being a particular strength for the area. I would rate my decision to move across the country in order to attend the graduate program as one of the best, if not the best, in my life-thus-far.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

The pro of my graduate program is the flexibility of the schedule since I am a working mother also. The cons would be that I don't have the interaction of sitting in a classroom with a teacher and other students.

Great University with quality help whenever you need it

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

The educational value for most of the classes is amazing. I have learned a lot. Many of the instructors are difficult to get ahold of, however, and often don't respond well to questions for clarification. That aside, i would recommend this program for the value of the information you learn and the interactions with others in the program.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

I am taking the Organizational Leadership Program through Gonzaga University. I love the structure of the online classes and that fact that the faculty is readily available if you need them. I also appreciate that the students are encouraged more to collaborate than compete. The only con is that there are two 3-day intensive courses that you MUST travel to campus for and even that in and of itself isn't all that bad. I think the value of this program is immense and would recommend it to others.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Gonzaga is a small campus. For this reason you get to know the people that attend the University rather well. Although many people may find this to be a negative because they may be looking for a larger college. They would be wrong to assume they shouldn't attend Gonzaga because the city of Spokane is rather large. For this reason I believe Gonzaga is a great University and i would encourage people to consider attending here.

It provides me with the opportunity to continue my education at my own time and not have to relocate to where the institution is located.
