NASPAA accreditation, while voluntary, signifies that a master’s program has undertaken a rigorous process of peer review conducted by COPRA.  All accredited programs have successfully met the NASPAA Accreditation Standards for professional master’s degree programs in public policy, affairs, and administration.  The accreditation process is designed to foster continuous assessment and improvement, even after accreditation has been achieved. At this time, 191 programs are accredited by NASPAA.
