UW Runstad Department of Real Estate

Real Estate Minor

Real estate is core to both our society and economic well-being. Real estate professionals serve a central role in the development of the built environment from deciding what will be developed and how it will be funded to leasing and managing real property. The Real Estate Minor is open to all undergraduate students across the University of Washington. It is designed to provide students with an opportunity to obtain comprehensive exposure to the field of real estate.

The Real Estate Minor requires the completion of 25 credits of approved courses, including a minimum of 16 credits in undergraduate real estate courses. The other 9 credits can come from undergraduate and graduate real estate courses (with the permission of the instructors) or from approved related courses from other departments as listed in the curriculum section.

The Real Estate Minor has been created with the generous support of Windermere Real Estate and the Jacobi family.
