Program Accreditations

The UCCS College of Public Service (CPS) offers quality education to students who seek careers in the field. CPS offers a combination of rigorous academics, relevant research, and practical application.

Accredited Public Administration Program

The School of Public Affairs is one of the premier schools of public administration in the Rocky Mountain West.

The Master of Public Administration is accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), the global standard in public service education.

Accredited Social Work Programs

The UCCS Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work are both accredited by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation.

Accreditation of a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of program quality evaluated through a peer review process.  An accredited program has sufficient resources to meet its mission and goals and the Commission on Accreditation has verified that it demonstrates compliance with all sections of the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards. 

Accreditation applies to all program sites and program delivery methods of an accredited program.  Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of the program and the competence of students graduating from the program.
