Real estate development can be both a profitable business as well as an instrument for promoting public interest in areas such as sustainable communities, affordable housing, and community development.

Minoring in this area can lead to a great career or entrepreneurial opportunities in areas such as land and property development, property management, mortgage banking, and sales.

Our minor in real estate development consists of 25 credit hours that are an interdisciplinary core of foundation and capstone courses and elective courses grouped by specializations.

The specializations are: construction, housing and property management, public policy and facilities, community development, and business administration and real estate law.

Electives may be selected within one or among these specializations.
