Ronald Anderson, Department Chair
Forrest Huffman, Ph.D.
Professor of Real Estate and Finance
The real estate major is designed to provide an educational foundation for students interested in learning about real estate and real estate markets and/or pursuing careers in real estate. Traditional career paths include real estate investment and financial analysis, real estate financing and mortgage lending, real estate appraisal and valuation, property management, residential and commercial brokerage and marketing, and corporate real estate analysis.
Core competencies to be developed include the ability to analyze real estate investment opportunities from investor and lender perspectives, conduct asset and risk assessments and implement risk management strategies, understand the dynamics of real estate markets, and develop an understanding of the legal framework surrounding real estate ownership, title transfer, and the regulatory and legal requirements, including agency obligations, common in real estate transactions.
All real estate-interested students are encouraged to participate in Temple Real Estate Organization (TREO), the Fox School student professional organization (SPO) for real estate interested students. TREO meets regularly throughout the semester and has an active real estate speaker series. A Temple University real estate student listserv serves as a conduit for various internships and job/career opportunities from real estate companies in the local area. Temple University also hosts a chapter of Alpha Sigma Gamma, the International Real Estate Honorary Society. Alpha Sigma Gamma is the premier honorary organization for real estate students, faculty and professionals with over 30 university chapters and program affiliates. Membership in ASG is based on academic achievement. Real estate majors are eligible for a number of professional and university scholarships and financial awards, including the Fox School's E. Fred Kemner Scholarship Award, devoted exclusively to Temple real estate students. Students interested in any of the opportunities above should contact Professor Huffman for more information.
All students starting in the 2013-2014 academic year and beyond are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.
