ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2022 and after)

*Please Note: Face-to-face/in-person instruction of this program is available ONLY at the main campus in Tallahassee, FL. This program is NOT available via Online/Distance Learning.*

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and diversity requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

Real Estate is a limited-access major. To be admitted to the major, you must have completed at least 52 hours, have earned a “C minus“ or better in the Admission Prerequisite Courses (CGS2100 or CGS2518, MAC2233, ECO2013, ECO2023, ACG2021, ACG2071 & STA2023), and have the required overall GPA. The program involves an interdisciplinary approach to the development, financing, and marketing of real estate. Students are exposed to theoretical concepts from urban land economics, economics, consumer behavior, appraisal, investment analysis, and risk theory. The real estate process is analyzed based on this background. The program develops a systematic methodology for investment and appraisal analysis within a framework that acknowledges the impact of taxation, risk, financing structure, governmental constraints, and market context. This framework provides the basis for examining decisions involving real property investment from the developer, lender, and consumer perspectives.

Students should complete diversity requirements through their General Education coursework.
