A Four Year Program for Highly Qualified Students
The Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) Combined Degree Program is designed for highly qualified and motivated undergraduate students seeking to complete both an undergraduate and MSRE degree in four years. Admission to the MSRE Combined Degree Program is based on a number of factors including the applicant’s GMAT or GRE scores, work experience, involvement in real estate and academic record. Most combined degree students entered the University of Florida with a significant number of college credits. With permission from their undergraduate departments, the combined degree program allows students to use 12 hours of graduate coursework toward both their undergraduate and MSRE degree. Combined degree students need to complete their Bachelor’s degree at least one Fall or Spring semester before earning their MSRE degree, they cannot graduate with their undergraduate degree in Spring and then the MSRE in Summer.
Other Program Highlights:
- Undergraduate students from any college/major may apply. Some prior course work in finance, accounting, business statistics or economics is preferable but not required.
- Combined degree students will complete the MSRE Program alongside students with work experience in the field, in courses taught by UF Hough Graduate Business School faculty and highly qualified industry professionals, with exposure to a variety of visiting industry professionals.
- A significant percentage of the graduate credit hours required to complete the MSRE program can be funded at a reduced cost if the student has qualified for Bright Futures or if they are enrolled under the Florida PrePaid College Tuition Program.
- MSRE Combined Degree students may also take an additional 6 graduate credits as an undergraduate to store for use toward the graduate degree while still eligible for Bright Futures benefits.
