Accreditation for the Preparation of teachers. Specialized and Programmatic accreditation normally applies to programs, departments, or schools that are parts of an institution. The accredited unit may be as large as a college or school within a university or as small as a curriculum within a discipline.

However, certain accrediting agencies also accredit professional schools and other specialized or vocational institutions of higher education that are freestanding in their operations.

In some fields, specialized accreditation is necessary in order to take qualifying exams or practice the profession. In other fields, specialized or programmatic accreditation has little or no effect on your ability to work.
