About Our Real Estate Program & The Industry

The Real Estate curriculum has been designed by the Business Administration Department for students who plan to enter the field in such areas as sales, brokerage, management, and escrows. The program prepares students for employment and qualifies them for the real estate sales and brokers examinations. Note: Real Estate courses may not be offered on a regular basis due to fluctuating demands on the Real Estate market.

For license and exam requirement information, visit the California Bureau of Real Estate website.


Employment opportunities exist in sales, with real estate finance organizations, appraising, or with title companies. Real Estate professionals are needed everywhere, but employment is most concentrated in large urban areas and smaller, rapidly growing communities. Many "moonlighters," homemakers and retired persons are attracted to real estate sales due to the flexible and part-time work schedules characteristic of this field.


Employment of real estate agents and brokers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations for the next several years. Salary potential is vast but is typically between approximately $19,000 to $46,500 per year for salaried agents.
