Real estate from all angles.

The Edward St. John Real Estate Program has been a leader in real estate education for almost a quarter-century. Its flagship degree, the MS in Real Estate and Infrastructure, gives you the foundation to thrive in virtually any industry where the principles of real estate are critical to success.

Available as a full-time option in Washington, D.C, or part-time option in Baltimore or Washington, D.C., the program is taught by Hopkins experts and practitioners from the region’s leading investment, development, law, architectural, engineering, and planning firms. Their courses will provide you with insights into multiple areas of study, including development, finance, sustainability, market analysis, real estate law, and more. What’s more, the program offers a textured and nuanced understanding of the industry that extends far beyond anything you’ll find in a traditional real estate program. 

The Carey Network: Location, location, location.

Often schools house their real estate programs in continuing or graduate studies departments; as a result, students may get left out of the valuable networking opportunities that only a business school can offer.

As part of the Carey Business School, the MS in Real Estate and Infrastructure was designed to give our students a direct pipeline to executives, entrepreneurs, and decision makers. This includes hundreds of respected faculty and industry peers, and more than 900 real estate alumni, many leaders in their fields.  Add to this 19,000—and counting—Carey alumni, and it’s a network like no other, connecting students to professional opportunities that can impact their careers immediately—and for years to come.

Build your career on a solid foundation.

After graduation, our students have gone on to start or enhance their careers as brokers, project managers, asset management advisors, analysts, planners, and others. Our alumni have earned positions at respected companies throughout the region and nation, with some recent examples including:

  • Alex Brown Realty Inc.
  • Bozzuto Development
  • CB Richard Ellis
  • Clark Construction Group
  • Corporate Office Properties Trust
  • Cushman & Wakefield
  • Enterprise Community Partners
  • Erickson

The 36-credit full-time MS in Real Estate and Infrastructure is offered at the Carey Business School’s Washington, D.C., campus near Dupont Circle. It’s designed for individuals with up to three years of professional work experience.

Students complete the program in a cohort format, with a group of peers following the same curriculum for most of their studies. Students will also take part in a unique special topics course, designed to encourage interaction with the professional community during meetings, field trips, and site visits.

During the summer—the final leg of their coursework—students will take part in an internship and practicum experience. This is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on work experience with a company in a specific area of interest. The internships are structured and supervised by Johns Hopkins faculty with a professional mentor, and students must successfully complete their internship to graduate.

The curriculum for academic year 2015-16 includes the following courses, but sequence and availability of specific electives may vary. Real Estate and Infrastructure degree credits can also be applied toward some industry certifications. Consult with an academic adviser to ensure you take courses in the approved sequence. Course descriptions for 2015-2016 classes are available here.
