- STEM designated program
This Accelerated Dual Degree is intended for students who wish to pursue a distinct graduate degree in both Construction Management and Real Estate Development. Rather than complete each curriculum separately and obtaining the degrees independently, this option affords students the opportunity to explore the synergies between these disciplines by intersecting coursework from each program. Once accepted into the 1+1 Accelerated Dual Degree Option, a student enrolls in either the M.S. Construction Management or in the M.S. Real Estate Development and sub-matriculates in the other program. The 1+1 Accelerated Dual Degrees capitalize upon coursework shared by both programs and upon the flexibility of elective courses
Layering an additional area of expertise to their primary area of study affords students the credentials and competencies to tackle a broad panorama of projects and to address pressing environmental and community-based challenges. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary educational models foster nimble, flexible problem solving on multiple levels. Working in team and/or laboratory centered processes, students engage in problem-based, experiential and collaborative learning. Such acumen not only prepares students for the complexities of the construction and real estate development industries, but also trains future leaders in these professions.
Curriculum: 2+ Years
- Both degrees can be accomplished in two-plus years of full-time study, comprising a total reduction of twelve credits or one semester of graduate coursework and tuition.
- Students may complete both programs in 61 credits, instead of the 73 credits required if the programs were pursued separately.
