Frostburg State University is regionally accredited through the Middle States Association as an institution of higher learning. The M.S. in Counseling Psychology Program is accredited by The Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC). The M.S. faculty at FSU decided to seek accreditation from a this psychology organization due to its focus on psychological science, rather than the Council of Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and its identification with educational programs. MPCAC accredits psychology programs that promote training in the scientific practice of professional psychology at the Master’s level. Our graduate program was the first in the University System of Maryland and the sixth nationwide to be accredited by MPAC in 1998, and received a full 10-year reaccreditation in 2008.
