Real Estate Minor

The undergraduate minor in real estate offers students a unique opportunity to learn how the ever-expanding, multifaceted real estate industry functions and how real estate assets—the built environment in which we all live—are analyzed, financed, and developed. The courses in the minor—real estate law, real estate economics, and real estate finance—especially complement majors in business, economics, communications, legal or political studies, and organizational leadership.

Students minoring in Real Estate must complete six courses:
