Academic Program Accreditation

A number of the university's programs hold accreditation by provincial, Canadian and/or international professional accreditation bodies.  A listing of accredited programs at the University of Manitoba can be found below.  Note: in some cases, program accreditation may be used in lieu of a formal academic program review.

To increase the consistency in the communication of accreditation results as well as to increase transparency with respect to these reviews, Senate has approved a set of guidelines on the communication of external program accreditation.  For further information on these guidelines, please click here.
