Graduate Minor in Real Estate

The Real Estate minor is available to graduate students receiving degrees in related fields, such as Building Construction, Urban and Regional Planning, Geography and Accounting.

Students pursuing a masters degree must complete six credit hours to obtain the real estate minor. Students pursuing a Ph.D. outside of the business school must complete twelve credit hours to obtain the real estate minor.

Students taking Hough courses must own a notebook computer conforming to the Warrington College of Business graduate computer requirements. Additionally, a real estate faculty member will need to be added to the student’s graduate committee as his or her minor representative.

Information about non-Business student registration, our Hough Graduate Modular system, academic calendar, course offering and more can be found on the Graduate Elective Courses page.

To earn the minor, students must:

  1. Ask Dr. David Ling or Dr. Wayne Archer to be your “minor representative”, then ask your advisor to add Dr. Ling or Dr. Archer and the “Real Estate Minor” to your supervisory committee form.
  2. Read the information on the Graduate Elective Courses page about Hough Graduate School of Business (HGSB) being on a different academic calendar, Modular dates and Priority Registration dates.
  3. See the tables below, then find the section numbers for the courses you need using the links from the Graduate Elective Courses page (since the modular information is not on the UF Schedule of Courses and you cannot view sections in ONE.UF for HGSB courses). After Priority Registration has begun for the term you need registration assistance, verify that you have no registration holds in ONE.UF, then email your UFID and the section numbers of the Real Estate courses you need added to Ms. Pam DeMichele.
