Bill ID: 19-20-14
PCC ID: 19003
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Bachelor of Arts in Real Estate and the Built Environment
Proposed: 08/30/2019
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The proposal seeks to create and establish a new undergraduate major degree that will be housed in the Real Estate Development Program in the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. The proposed degree program is unique in that there are no other undergraduate degree programs in real estate and the built environment in Maryland. The University of Baltimore offers an undergraduate degree in business administration with a specialization in real estate and economic development, but takes a different approach to real estate education. The proposed undergraduate degree program would address finance, but also all other disciplines that impact and inform real estate, particularly architecture, construction management, economics, urban planning, and historic preservation, to name a few.
