The IVC Real Estate program includes courses in business, real estate and finance. Students learn the principles, techniques and problems related to the transfer of real property, personal property, businesses and franchises, including appraising and financing.
Students who complete the core curriculum are equipped with not only immediately marketable skills but also the coursework necessary to sit for the California Real Estate Broker's Examination. They also earn transferable lower division credit that may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree in business related areas. In addition, individual courses in such areas as appraisal, property management, and real estate finance will provide students with entry-level skills in these areas. Numerous career opportunities exist for all students in the program, both those who take individual courses and those who complete the coursework for the major. Courses are offered primarily during evening and weekend hours to allow individuals with family and employment commitments the opportunity to study for a new or re-entry career.
