BS Four-Year Degree Plan: Real Estate

The real estate degree at Missouri State can be completed in eight regular semesters. However, a four-year graduation plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring upon admission to the University. Please remember that course availability and prerequisites are subject to change. Check out the course rotations before scheduling your classes and consult with your advisor when scheduling your classes.

This is a model four year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of general education electives, and placement in English and Mathematics.

This degree program can be completed in eight semesters.
