Construction Scholarships

In a construction management degree program you'll learn about all aspects of the building trade. You'll learn how to be a leader both on and off the construction site. If you're thinking of a career in construction, you may want to take a closer look at this major to make the most of your career and advancement opportunities. Continue reading below to find out more about this major and about construction management scholarships 

Core courses commonly found in this major include construction materials, structural methods, site logistics, safety management, labor relations, project scheduling, construction estimating and blueprint reading. Most programs are designed to impart skills and knowledge in two key areas: construction and management. Human resource skills and awareness are also stressed.

The bulk of these programs combine theoretical and practical knowledge. You'll receive instruction in traditional lecture-based classes and you'll also have practical courses with hands-on study. Most programs feature a construction internship as a degree requirement. Here you'll work in a junior supervisory capacity (under direct supervision) while receiving course credit.

Depending upon where you want to go to school, you should have access to the study of construction management at both the associate and the bachelor's degree level. The difference between the two programs will be the amount of liberal arts and humanities courses  you will be required to take.

Bachelor degree electives such as English, creative writing or the social sciences may seem abstract, or even abstruse, to the study of construction. However, the best manager is often the person with the widest understanding and the broadest base of knowledge. Choose your program and your level o study carefully.

The career outlook for graduates of construction management degree programs is surprisingly strong. Despite the nations most recent economic downturn, construction mangers are expected to experience better than average job growth over the coming decade. Job and advancement opportunities should be strongest for those with a bachelor's degree and a significant level of construction experience.
