Whereas the regional bodies accredit institutions as a whole, professional organizations accredit academic programs within universities. Garnering departmental accreditation from any of the organizations recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation is an achievement.

In addition to maintaining institutional accreditation through SACSCOC, the following departments and program at Christopher Newport have earned programmatic accreditation:


The Luter School of Business is accredited through Association to Advance College Schools of Business.

Computer Engineering

The bachelor of science degree in computer engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.


The bachelor of music degrees awarded by the Department of Music are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.

Social Work

The social work major is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.

Teacher Preparation

The Virginia Department of Education approves the teacher preparation programs. As such, these programs qualify students to sit for the licensure exam to teach in Virginia’s elementary and secondary schools.


The Department of Theater and Dance is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theater and, as such, holds students to high artistic standards, collaborative conduct and scholastic achievement.
