Economic Development and Housing

Real Estate, Housing and Community Development in Context

The Economic Development and Housing Specialization trains students for careers in housing, community development, real estate and economic development.

The major goals of this specialization are to:

  • Teach underlying economic theory governing real estate markets, politics surrounding the development process, and social theory underpinning the role of community organizations and residents.
  • Provide historical perspectives needed to understand and analyze current planning and policy issues, as well as the practical skills, such as real estate finance, needed to work in these fields.
