The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) granted Ball State University full accreditation for all graduate programs through the doctorate in fields of education in 1961, and the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted final accreditation at the doctoral level in 1974. Presently, master's degrees in 76 fields, specialist in education degrees in 4 fields, and doctoral degrees in 19 fields of study are offered.
Programs in school psychology began at Ball State when a master of arts degree (M.A.) program in school psychometry was initiated in 1964, soon followed by a specialist in education (Ed.S.) program in 1969 and the doctoral track in 1976.
The school psychology programs have earned a reputation for excellence in training and practice. Doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) and specialist in education (Ed.S.) degrees are fully accredited jointly by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The Ph.D. program was granted full accreditation by the American Psychological Association (APA) in 1985.
