Real Estate Scholarships
The academic major of real estate trains individuals in the science and art of buying and selling land, buildings and property. But there is more to this major than buying and selling. You'll also learn about appraising, valuation, market analysis and much more. Continue reading to find out more about real estate as a major as well as real estate scholarships.
Enroll in this major and you'll take courses such as income property management, computer applications, financing, appraising, taxation and real estate ethics. Most programs allow students to choose a concentration for their studies. Examples of these include market analysis, mortgage lending or construction management. Typically, bachelor's degree programs are designed to provide a general education in the first two years. Here you'll take liberal arts and humanities electives along with introductory business courses. In your final two years, you will face the bulk of your core real estate coursework. Some programs also feature a senior year internship or practicum in which you help to manage a building project or piece of property.
Similar to many academic fields, these programs come in a range of settings and styles. Some programs are theory-based while others are more practically oriented. Examine the programs in question carefully to ensure that your choice matches your educational and vocational goals. If your career goals involve urban planning, you may want to choose a program that is more theoretical. Or, if you plan on being a real estate salesperson, you'll most likely want more of a hands-on degree program.
Employment prospects for the field of real estate vary by region. The country's most recent economic downturn had a profound effect on certain areas of the global real estate market that it is only now recovering from. In fact, certain geographical regions have yet to recover. Still, job opportunities in the field of real estate should continue to be strong.
