Advising

To help support your success, every student is assigned an academic faculty advisor. Your faculty advisor will work with you to develop an academic course of study that includes helping you choose classes that fit your needs, discuss thesis and project topics and provide advice on options that may be available after you graduate.

While faculty advisors will communicate with their advisees periodically about the program, it is the responsibility of the student to reach out to their faculty advisor for more personal assistance.

To find your Faculty Advisor follow these steps:
  • Log into Zagweb
  • Click on the “Student Services and Financial Aid” tab
  • Select “Student Records”
  • Select “Degree Evaluation”
  • Select a term (most recent one should work)
  • Advisor name will be listed at the bottom. Click on name to email

Master’s in Organizational Leadership Course Sequence

The majority of ORGL students complete their degree in two to two and a half years. The time may vary based on the number of credits taken per term. At Gonzaga, 6 graduate credits constitute full-time status. In addition, we offer classes in several formats:

  • Traditional 16-week, on-campus classes in Spokane
  • 8-week, online classes (It is expected that students will not take more then one eight-week online class at a time.)
  • Short-term, intensive courses offered in Spokane, study abroad locations, and domestic immersion opportunities.

For the purpose of growth and development and the necessary foundation material to successfully navigate the program, we recommend the following Course Sequence:
