Career Opportunities

The Real Estate Minor will help students understand how their major can be integrated into a variety of career paths available within the real estate profession. It will prepare students for careers in real estate brokerage, finance, asset management, development, and public policy.

The minor is not only suitable for students intending to pursue a dedicated career in real estate, but will also be valuable in cases where real estate complements their major field. For example:

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

Sign up here if you want to be added to the listserv to receive information about real estate career opportunities. Use your UW email address and confirm your request by accepting the link on the confirmation email.

Hi, I’m Amrita and I’m currently a senior in Oceanography and minoring in Real Estate. I’ve been at UW since 2019 and hail from Calcutta, India. My free time is mostly spent trying new recipes or going on walks. I absolutely love the ocean and ocean-related things. I recently finished my research cruise to Fiji for my senior thesis and am currently working on my thesis. 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 own knowledge was quite different when I initially joined. I am available via email and available to set up meetings outside of my office hours via zoom. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and let’s aim to connect our community even more.
