The Department of Real Estate coordinates the teaching of students on the four-year Scottish undergraduate MA Real Estate programme. In the first two years, students study introductory and intermediate courses in Real Estate, Finance, Statistics and Economics alongside courses chosen from other disciplines within the MA programme. In the final two years students are able to choose from a wide range of honours courses from Real Estate and related disciplines, and write a dissertation on a topic of their choice. The Real Estate degree is an excellent preparation for careers in surveying, commercial real estate, investment, management, valuation and development.
The details below are intended to give students a guide to the courses they would be studying on the single honours MA Real Estate programme. Joint honours students will need to add to this list courses from their other programme. To read what each course is about, click on the course code. The credits shown are Aberdeen credits (30 Aberdeen credits = 15 ECTS). Courses tagged C are compulsory. Courses tagged R are highly recommended.
