The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) is a governing body that accredits master’s and doctoral degree programs in counseling and related programs that are offered by colleges and universities in the United States and throughout the world. Receiving accredited status means that the reviewed program substantially meets the critical quality-related program requirements for accredited status and assures that graduates have met the majority of the educational requirements for licensure or certification as a counselor in all states. Concordia University Irvine in partnership with the Townsend Institute chose to voluntarily undergo an extensive external review with CACREP to evaluate the quality of our Master of Arts in Counseling Program and earned CACREP accreditation.
