The ten-month, full-time in residence, Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) Program, housed in the Warrington College of Business Administration (WCBA), thrives on innovation, a dynamic student body, significant interaction with high-level working professionals, and nationally recognized professors. The program is a unique combination of theory and practice that will both enhance your real estate education and develop your professional skills.
Master of Science degree in real estate, non-thesis option: This M.S. option consists of at least 34 credits of letter-graded courses. It is designed to ensure that each student acquires a basic knowledge of the various functional areas in real estate, real estate finance and investment, real estate development, real estate law and institutions, real estate asset management, international real estate, and advanced training in specialized areas. The capstone course (REE 6948 Capstone Seminar and Applied Project (2 cr.)) involves actual projects in which students work in teams to undertake a real estate problem for real clients. This two-tiered program of study provides both a firm theoretical foundation for later professional effectiveness and an applied bridge to professional practice.
Master of Science degree in real estate/juris doctorate joint program: This joint degree program culminates in the M.S. and J.D. degrees. Applicants must meet the entrance requirements for both the Warrington College of Business Administration and the Levin College of Law. Admission to the second degree program is required no later than the end of the second consecutive semester after beginning one degree of the joint program.
The Department also offers a combined bachelor’s / master’s program for all undergraduate disciplines.
