Associate Degree Requirements:

The major is one of several requirements students need to fulfill in order to be awarded the Associate Degree, the highest level of academic achievement recognized by Santa Rosa Junior College. Please note that all of the following requirements must be met in order for the degree to be conferred:

For all students admitted for the Fall 2009 term or any term thereafter, a grade of "C" or better, or "P" if the course is taken on a pass/no pass basis, is required for each course applied toward the major.


The Real Estate major will provide students the opportunity to obtain entry-level positions and build their career within the area of real estate. Students will complete courses that meet continuing education requirements for the State of California's Real Estate Salesperson license and that are approved as an education requirement for both the State of California's Broker's license and California Appraiser Qualifications Board Exam. Students will benefit by the additional option of having a real estate major reflected on their Associate Degree.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this major, the student will be able to:

  1. apply an in-depth knowledge of California Real estate principles and laws to successfully complete licensure requirements for licensee and broker;
  2. satisfy Department of Real Estate and Office of Real Estate Appraisers educational requirements for state licensing;
  3. apply necessary skills required for marketing and negotiating real estate transaction;
  4. demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and ethically with the principals involved in a real property transaction; and

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
