Accreditation Resources

The Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology (CAPACS) seeks to develop, promote, and support quality sociological education and practice through the accreditation of bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in applied sociology, clinical sociology, engaged public sociology, and sociological practice. It establishes standards for such programs, accredits programs that demonstrate that they meet these standards, and monitors accredited programs to ensure that they continue to meet the standards.  Find more information HERE!
