Monmouth University Master’s Degree in Student Affairs and College Counseling Receives Accreditation

Monmouth University is proud to announce that its Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) program in Student Affairs and College Counseling received accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) through March 31, 2017.

Monmouth University’s program in Student Affairs and College Counseling is based on a counselor education framework established by CACREP standards. The 48-credit M.S.Ed. graduate program is one of less than 20 national programs that are designed to prepare student affairs practitioners as educators and counselors. The program focuses on the preparation of student affairs professionals and college counselors through coursework in counseling, college student development theory, and leadership in administration, all with a special emphasis on social justice and diversity.

“CACREP accreditation demonstrates the academic rigor of our graduate program in student affairs/college counseling. The value in accreditation reinforces the university and program faculty’s commitment to congruence with increased standards regarding the preparation and education of aspiring higher education professionals,” said Pietro Sasso, assistant professor of Student Affairs and College Counseling. “CACREP marks a major event in the maturation and development of our program.”

CACREP is a specialized accrediting body that grants accredited status to graduate and doctoral programs in professional counseling offered by colleges and universities in the United States and throughout the world. To gain accreditation, programs are thoroughly evaluated and have either met or exceeded national standards for professional counseling programs.
