New Minor!

Real Estate Development


All UMD undergraduates who are interested in careers relating to land use, real estate, and the built environment—such as architecture, business, construction management, civil engineering, historic preservation, local government, non-profit housing, public-private partnerships, landscape architecture, urban planning or related entrepreneurial ventures—can now complete a minor in real estate development.

The courses and minor are designed to expose students to social, economic and environmental considerations related to real estate development and to provide them with a working knowledge of the real estate industry. They include a focus on the development process; the basics of real estate tax and finance; urban planning and design; and the unique roles of government and the private sector in shaping the built environment.

Interested students can find more information and an online application at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation's website: http://www.arch.umd.edu/arch/minors-arch.
