Bachelor of Business Administration in Real Estate

Terry’s Real Estate Program, which began in the early 1960s, is recognized by publications such as U.S. News & World Report as one of the finest in the nation. The program was ranked in the top five of U.S. News’ annual rankings every year since 2005, and no other real estate program in the Southeast is ranked as high as Terry’s.

Real estate is an exciting subject for students to study because it is essentially building an understanding of the world around them. It is hard to find a company not impacted by real estate. Our majors not only sell and lease commercial real estate, they are leaders in the development, lending, investments and management of real estate. Real estate has a place for outgoing personalities and the more reserved, as well as anything in between. Come learn how to focus your energy and aptitude on something applied and specific with a direct link to careers in the workplace.

Curriculum Overview

The program has a strong reputation for the quality of the educational experience that we provide to our students. Employers often comment on the strong analytical skills Terry students exhibit, as well as their ability to think outside the box. A rigorous academic curriculum, coupled with the hands-on experience students gain through Terry’s internship program, gives our graduates a definite edge in this increasingly competitive job market.

Topics covered include:

  • Real estate development

In a typical year, we place an average of 70 students in internships at firms across the country. In addition to internships, Terry also contributes to the career placement of its real estate graduates through a résumé book that is mailed to more than 450 firms on a semi-annual basis.
