The terms “specialized accreditation,” “professional accreditation,” and “programmatic accreditation” mean the same thing. Each of these terms means that a specific program within a college has earned an accreditation from a specialized non-profit organization. Accreditation associations represent the professional interests of their particular fields of study.
A specialized accreditation is an honor to a program. It communicates to current students, prospective students, and professionals in the field that a particular program has been examined by its peers and found to be a good one.
