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 the Temple University chapter of Rho Epsilon, the real estate student professional organization.  Real Estate majors are also eligible for various professional and university scholarships, including the program's E. Fred Kemner Award.
