Accelerated M.S. in Real Estate Program

Overview

The accelerated B.A./B.S.-M.S.R.E. program is available to juniors and seniors in Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH) and Fordham College at Lincoln Center (FCLC) who have a specific interest in a real estate career or who have a desire to explore a nontraditional academic area to enhance their undergraduate experience, with a goal of earning a master's degree in real estate.

To be eligible to enroll in the accelerated program, FCRH/FCLC students should have a cumulative 3.0 grade point average. Students with a lower GPA may request special consideration from their adviser and the director of the Real Estate Institute.

Students should plan to formally express their intent to pursue a master's degree in real estate no later than the second semester of their sophomore year (for those who plan to begin the accelerated program as juniors) and no later than the first semester of junior year (for those who plan to begin graduate studies as seniors).

Interested students should contact their FCRH/FCLC academic adviser to express their intent and discuss their eligibility. Students will need the following:

  • An intent form;
  • A statement of consent/approval from their advisor; and
  • An interview with an advisor from the M.S.R.E. program.

Recommended Courses

The initial graduate courses are those that will introduce students to real estate and expose them to industry practices, while helping them complete the requirements of their undergraduate studies. Eligible FCRH/FCLC students will be permitted to take the following courses, completing up to 6 graduate credits in their junior or senior year.

First Semester

  • REAL 5006 Real Estate Legal Concepts and Contracts (3 credits)

Second Semester

Admissions

Students who successfully complete the stipulated 6 graduate credits will be supported in submitting their applications to the M.S.R.E. program. Students will need to submit the standard application for the M.S.R.E. program, but the GMAT/GRE requirement and the application fee will be waived for FCRH/FCLC students in the accelerated program.
