I earned an MA in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University in May 2010. Gonzaga is most famous for their basketball team, the Bulldogs.
It was a wonderful experience that fulfilled a long-procrastinated goal to earn an advanced degree.
The degree exposed me to new ideas and sparked my writing. The program also got me blogging and intimately involved with social media.
I would do it again, and recommend the program without reservation.
I wrote my thesis about Facebook and how it’s adoption conforms to Everett Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovation S-Curve.
Writing this thesis was one of the hardest things I have done in my life. Not sure what that says about how hard I have challenged myself in my life – but it was difficult.
Despite the fact that the thesis is nothing great, completing it was something that required sustained discipline and focus. For that I am proud.
I suspect no one would want to read it as these are primarily degree earning vehicles and nothing more.
But I did write one, and here it is!
