In today’s world, real estate is more than the financial bottom line. By focusing on the “quadruple bottom line” of real estate development — people, planet, profit and placemaking — today developers must combine financial feasibility with environmental sustainability, social consciousness, design excellence and community engagement. Using Philadelphia and its surroundings, students address real estate development projects ranging from single buildings to entire districts. By sub-matriculating in the master’s program, Architectural Studies majors may complete foundational coursework required in the MS Real Estate Development program, completing a maximum of 12 credits towards the graduate degree, thereby achieving advanced standing in the master’s program while completing the baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation from the BS Architectural Studies, a student may fulfill remaining requirements for the MS Real Estate Development in one year of full-time study.
Curriculum: 5 years
- Students may elect to pursue a 24-credit track in Real Estate Development, consisting of four graduate real estate development courses and four undergraduate business courses.
