students using software as part of Interactive Media Studies


The College of Creative Arts seeks accreditation from a variety of external organizations because such recognition provides added assurance to students and prospective employers that our degree programs meet the highest professional standards.

The accreditation process typically involves an extensive self-study, followed by an on-site visit by nationally known professionals, and then a decision by the accrediting body as to whether accreditation should be granted.
