In addition to campus-wide institutional accreditation, some departments and programs undergo specialized or professional accreditation — also known as programmatic accreditation — to certify that they meet the standards set out by professional organizations and accrediting bodies. Through this process, departments, and programs undergo an examination and evaluation of their educational practices and curriculum designed to develop specific competencies and skills that students need to succeed in their desired profession.
