Making Sociology Viable: Certifying Practitioners and Accrediting Programs
The Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology (CAPACS) accredits sociology programs at the Baccalaureate, Master's, and Doctoral level. The program must meet curriculum standards in the areas of sociological theory, methods, skills, and practical experience such as an internship as well as having adequate faculty, resources, and facilities to support the program. Accreditation assures the quality and performance of the program.
Applied, clinical, and public sociology- can be made stronger as a profession if it is populated by practitioners who are certified graduates of accredited programs.
