Real Estate Major

A Good Deal on a Profitable Career

Practicing real estate is no longer only a side gig—a Real Estate degree gives students the foundation needed to make a lucrative living managing and investing in property-related transactions.

This innovative program enables students to pursue careers in real estate investment and financial analysis, mortgage lending, real estate appraisal and valuation, corporate real estate analysis, property and management as well as traditional residential and commercial brokerage and marketing.

Students in the program will develop the ability to analyze real estate investment opportunities from investor and lender perspectives, conduct asset and risk assessments and implement risk management strategies, understand the dynamics of real estate markets, and understand the legalities of real estate transactions.

Temple University is pleased to present its own professional organization for real estate students, the Temple Real Estate Organization (TREO). Real estate majors are also eligible for various professional and university scholarships, including the program’s E. Fred Kemner Award.
