The Master of Real Estate Development program uses a lock-step curriculum model. Students enter as a cohort group during the fall semester and graduate after completing five semesters.
Previously, the program started during the first summer semester and required six semesters to complete. In June 2018, the program was streamlined and the start date changed to be consistent with other graduate executive programs. Program changes take effect Fall Semester 2019.
Course materials are delivered primarily through Auburn's online learning platform
called CANVAS. Students can view their distance-based class lectures, work with team
members on group assignments, hold discussions with their professors and classmates,
submit homework and download course materials.
Students visit Auburn's campus six (6) times during the program. At these week-long residencies, a substantial portion of two courses will be delivered in a face-to-face, classroom setting. In addition, each semester, faculty and students will participate in a four-day field trip to visit a cutting-edge real estate development project and meet industry leaders. One of these trips will be to an international site.
