Liberty’s graduate programs in counseling, social work receive eight-year accreditations from CACREP, CSWE

In March, Liberty University’s School of Behavioral Sciences received the maximum of eight additional years of accreditation for all five of its graduate counseling programs through the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP): M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, (both online and residential formats), M.A. in Marriage, Couple & Family Counseling (residential), M.Ed. in School Counseling (online), and Ph.D. in Counselor Education & Supervision (online).

Additionally in March, Liberty’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program received an eight-year accreditation of its own from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Achieving full accreditation is a significant achievement with great benefits to MSW students, serving as a testimony to the high quality of the program and enabling students to obtain future licensure as Licensed Master Social Workers and/or Licensed Clinical Social Workers. The B.S. in Social Work, offered both residentially and online, received an eight-year accreditation by CSWE last year.

“These accreditations are the national gold standard of quality for these programs, and we look forward to the way this will facilitate our students serving as Champions for Christ in these fields,” said Dr. Kenyon Knapp, dean of the School of Behavioral Sciences. “I am so grateful for the hard work and dedication of our counseling and social work faculty. Although the entire departments were involved, special recognition should go out to the CACREP Liaison team of Dr. David Brown, Dr. Shannan Shiderly, and Dr. Patricia Kimball, as well as to Dr. Christine Fulmer for writing the CSWE self-study and (Department of Social Work chair) Cheryl Nitz for her leadership and coordination.”
