The College of Community and Public Affairs offers two accredited programs.
The Master in Public Administration program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), ensuring excellence in education and training for public services. NASPAA is a membership association of graduate programs in public administration, public policy and public affairs. Its Commission on Peer Review and Accreditation is the specialized accreditor of these master's degree programs.
The Master in Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CWSE), responsible for developing accreditation standards that define competent preparation and ensuring that social work programs meet them.
