BRING YOUR OWN PASSION
You belong here! The real estate credential (minor/certificate) is available to all full-time UT undergraduates in business and non-business majors. Bring your enthusiasm and make it happen.
My favorite part about the certificate was that I received access to McCombs classes and professors without being a business major.
FOR CURRENT UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
An undergraduate certificate or minor can be pursued alongside any undergraduate degree at UT Austin. This transcript-recognized real estate program requires application and admission. It is offered only for current undergraduate students and is not a standalone program for people that have already graduated. The certificate does not include real estate licensure – a different certification not associated with our program, offered by the State of Texas.
Attend an information session and make an informed decision.

Pursuing the Certificate has made me more excited about diving into the industry once I graduate.
CAREER RESOURCESThrough the Undergraduate Real Estate Society, the Center offers several co-curricular activities that augment time spent in the classroom. Benefits include specialized real estate career assistance, project and company visits, software training, case competitions, industry conferences, and more.
The Real Estate Certificate provided me with an amazing sense of community in the commercial real estate industry.
The certificate and minor require courses in accounting, finance, real estate finance, development, investment or law, and electives in architecture, economics, engineering, or urban planning. Students in the 2020-2022 Undergraduate Catalog and beyond are eligible for the minor. All students under earlier Undergraduate Catalogs must apply for the certificate.
