The Real Estate program offers a comprehensive curriculum that serves as a foundation for students seeking employment in real estate related enterprises. The primary objective of the program is to provide students with the analytical and critical thinking skills necessary to enter the real estate industry. More specifically, the program aims to equip students for entry-level positions in mortgage banking and institutional lending, real estate brokerage and leasing, appraisal and investment consulting, real estate investment and development activities, corporate real estate, or real estate positions within government agencies.
The Real Estate Society (student organization) and The FSU Real Estate Network (alumni and friends) serve to give students exposure to the various aspects of the real estate industry through their corporate tours and professional forums, as well as an opportunity to interact with real estate professionals. The program seeks to facilitate internships which provide students the chance to gain practical experience.
Established in the early 1970s in response to the rapidly growing employment opportunities in real estate, today the program at FSU is one of the largest and most successful degreed programs in the nation.
The real estate major is a limited access program. To be admitted to the real estate major, a student must meet the admission requirements.
