National Addiction Studies Accreditation Commission (NASAC)
Grand Canyon University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ Master of Science in Addiction Counseling program is accredited by the National Addiction Studies Accreditation Commission (NASAC). The NASAC is the only accrediting body specific to addiction majors and minors at the associate, baccalaureate, master and doctorate levels. They aim to provide legitimacy to the study of addiction science by offering structured curriculum standards and expectations for faculty. Additionally, the NASAC accreditation provides purpose in the classroom, creating a connection between learned objectives and real-life application. This accreditation may benefit graduates from the program seeking to obtain state licensure as an addiction counselor.
