CACREP Accreditation - M.S. in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling

CACREP Accreditation

Walden’s M.S. in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). CACREP is an independent accrediting agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation that accredits counselor-preparation master’s degree programs. Walden is one of the few higher education institutions to offer a CACREP-accredited master’s degree in professional counseling program with a specific focus on marriage, couples, and family counseling online.

This accreditation ensures that our program meets CACREP standards of quality and relevance to the profession. Graduating from a CACREP-accredited master’s degree program can provide you with:

  • Access to more employment opportunities nationwide.
  • An advantage when applying to doctoral degree programs.
  • A streamlined state counseling licensing application process.
  • The skills and credibility to maximize your impact on the profession.

In addition, several recent studies have shown that test takers from CACREP-accredited programs scored significantly higher on the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) than test takers from non–CACREP-accredited programs.*
