University-wide Requirements

Description: The major offers a background for students planning careers in real estate sales, leasing, management, or appraising. Real Estate is the study of site selection, acquisition (lease or purchase), management and disposition of real property.

Career Opportunities: Potential career positions include junior appraiser, lease negotiator, leasing agent, sales associate, and right of way agent.
Additional Fees: Voluntary membership in the Real Estate Society and inclusion in the resume book involves a small fee.
Scholarships: The Real Estate Society sponsors scholarships each semester.
Study Abroad: UGA at Oxford Study Abroad Program.
Internships: Internships may be done for credit and are encouraged.
Student Organizations: The UGA Real Estate Society is an organization for real estate majors and other students interested in real estate as a career. At least once a semester, meetings are held with individuals working in many areas of the real estate industry. These individuals provide insight into their particular job, how they developed their career, and where they got started. You do not need to be a real estate major to join the Real Estate Society. All students are strongly encouraged to join the Real Estate Society as soon as they become departmental majors.

Membership in the Society not only makes the student eligible for scholarship awards, but also entitles the student to submit a resume for inclusion in the departmental resume book.

To join the Real Estate Society, complete an application (available in 206 Brooks Hall or by completing the form provided on this page) and submit your dues (currently $50) to the departmental secretary located in 206 Brooks Hall. If you are paying with a check, please make it payable to the Real Estate Society. The dues payment is a one-time only fee, so it is advantageous to join the Society as early in a student's college career as possible. For more information about The Real Estate Society, see Dr. Munneke in 201 Brooks Hall or email him at
