Date:10/29/2008

University announces an addition to its roster of online degree programs

Spokane (PRWEB) October 29, 2008 -- Gonzaga University (www.gonzagaonline.com), an accredited not-for-profit university based in Spokane, has announced the addition of a revised online Master in Communication & Leadership Studies program to its roster of online degree programs, which includes a Master in Organizational Leadership and Master of Science in Nursing. The new Jesuit curriculum was fashioned to address modern communication theory for a global media environment. Its online medium will make the program accessible to students worldwide.

As global perspective becomes a necessary part of most business ventures, cultural immersion and an understanding of ethical communication have also become increasingly valuable. Gonzaga's revised online Master in Communication & Leadership Studies program addresses these needs through a practicum of writing, multimedia and public speaking. It is tailored to a growing population of students who seek niche communications education for a variety of expanding fields such as health and environmental communication. For those seeking Ph.D. work, it is also ideal.

"The world is changing; so must our curriculum," explains Heather Crandall, communication program chair at Gonzaga University. "The recent changes in our curriculum allow more elective choices for our students, as well as a stronger foundation of communication course content."

Many growing industries require strong communication skill sets including interpersonal relationships, collaboration and multimedia. The new practicum for Gonzaga's online Master in Communication and Leadership Studies program was designed to improve a student's skill in a format that will allow learned tools to evolve in tandem with the demands of the 21st century. It specifically targets those aspiring towards leadership roles within their organizations or communication field.

"Today's global climate requires that professionals have the ability to speak publicly, manage multimedia and understand extensive social systems," explained John S. Caputo, professor of communication at Gonzaga University. "Communications expertise today goes beyond grammar and fluid discussion, it demands a thorough understanding of ethics, research and the process of dialogue on a larger scale."

This is the next step for Gonzaga in keeping with global demand for online education opportunities; the school expanded into the online learning environment in 2004 and recently launched a new web site dedicated to its online master's degree programs (www.gonzagaonline.com).
