If a university is regionally accredited, all programs that university offers have to have that base accreditation right?

    The school or university's degrees are accredited. Other programs might require specific accreditation to be considered by employers. E.g. paralegal programs need to be ABA-accredited (American Bar Association).

    Yes, but "base accreditation" won't be acceptable in many professions. If the university's law school is not ABA accredited, for example, graduates would not be eligible to sit for the bar exam (in most states), even though the university itself is regionally accredited.

    No.  That means that the school is accredited.

    Some programs are also accredited by agencies that specifically deal with a single type of program.  For example, the University of Alaska Anchorage is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, but last year the agency that accredits education programs (Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation) pulled the accreditation for UAA's teaching program.  All of the other majors are still accredited.
