Program Description

The Bachelor of Science in Real Estate and Urban Sustainability highlights how real estate developers, architects, environmental activists, and policymakers are collaborating in new and innovative ways to implement important initiatives in real estate and urban sustainability.

Students in the program will acquire broad-based knowledge in real estate finance, law, market analysis, valuation and development, as well as the expertise required to obtain employment in the rapidly growing areas of the real estate industry relating to climate risk assessment and management, the construction of green buildings, and the development of affordable and sustainable housing.

The curriculum explores local, national, and global innovations in real estate development and NYC, New York State and U.S. laws, mandates, and financial incentives to address the sustainability challenges of cities in the twenty-first century.

Located in New York City—a global capital of real estate—this program provides real estate internship and career opportunities with real estate companies, architectural firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies.
