Real Estate Licensure

Overview

There are many reasons to choose a career in real estate: set your own schedule, be your own boss, knowledgeably invest in properties, form relationships with other agents, and collect commissions for home sales that you manage.

To help students prepare for the real estate license exam, and in response to ongoing employment growth in the real estate field, we have collaborated with real estate industry professionals to develop the Real Estate Licensure Specialized Studies Program. Coursework is modeled after the curriculum created by the California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE), and the National Association of Realtors (NRA).

This program is ideal for you if you:

  • Are interested in pursuing a real estate license and meeting the other requirements outlined by the CalBRE
  • Need to satisfy the educational requirements to sit for the real estate license exam
  • Are seeking continuing education to fulfill educational requirements to sit for the broker’s license exam
  • Wish to learn more about personal investments and property acquisition
