The real estate minor is open to all undergraduate students at Lehigh University, irrespective of the student’s home college or department.  Real estate courses are taken in parallel with a student’s chosen academic major and, consistent with the multidisciplinary nature of the industry, integrates topics across a wide range of fields.


Students need to complete 5 required courses in addition to a real estate internship.  The practicum, a two-semester capstone course sequence, must be taken during the senior year.
