Minor in Land Development

The land development minor is open to all majors and requires 16 hours of coursework. Students study site analysis, conceptual design and planning, environmental regulations, project financing and budgetary controls and contract administration.

This minor offers critical skills in the effective use of land for CM majors and for other students interested in professions related to the built environment such as land use planning, regional economic development, real estate sales, environmental studies and business administration.

This minor enhances skills required for entry-level positions in the construction industry and should help students develop a competitive edge in the job market.

NOTE: Students must have their advisers request that a land development minor be added to their records or it will not show up on their transcripts.
