DePaul Undergraduate Degree + Real Estate (MS) ​

The Master of Science in Real Estate offers students a focused degree program of specialized courses in real estate analysis, development, finance, valuation, investment, planning and public policy. Courses are taught by both academics and professionals and are frequently team taught by a combination of the two. Casework and teamwork are hallmarks of the program, providing opportunities to develop communication and leadership skills.

Students emerge from the program with strong exposure to real estate content, concepts and practices as well as a sold array of skills that can be adapted to the evolving and inherently multi-disciplinary real estate industry.

DePaul degree-seeking undergraduate students interested in earning a Master of Science in Real Estate may apply to the bachelor's degree/Real Estate (MS) combined program. Students may be able to obtain both degrees in as few as five years.
