Career Opportunities

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Real Estate prepares students for careers in real estate finance, asset management, brokerage, urban and real estate development, and housing among many other potential professional career paths.

Students are encouraged to complete an internship or gain work experience during their time at UW, particularly during the summer between their junior and senior year. RE 480: Professional Development Seminar is a required course that allows students to refine their professional projects and prepare them to apply for internships and jobs.

The real estate major can be completed in parallel with other degrees, including in the following fields:

  • Architecture
  • Business
  • Communications
  • Community, Environment and Planning
  • Construction Management
  • Geography
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Law, Societies and Justice
  • Sociology

Amrita Ahuja

Email Contact:
amritaa@uw.edu

Hi, I’m Amrita and I’m currently a senior in Oceanography and minoring in Real Estate. I came to the UW in 2019 and I’m from Calcutta, India. My favorite things to do during my free time are going on walks and cooking new recipes. I absolutely love the ocean and am very happy with my major. However, I would love to get to know more people in the Real Estate department and try to ease students, especially international students into this department. I am very keen on understanding how different students have different perspectives on housing, depending on where they’re from, since my knowledge was quite different when I initially joined. I am available via email: amritaa@uw.edu and we can even set up a meeting via zoom. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and let’s try to connect our community even more.
