Our students embrace experiences throughout their studies inside and outside the classroom, offering them a deeply enriching education followed by valuable career opportunities after graduation. Whether you want to study on campus or online, part-time or full-time, in Bristol or Providence, RWU has a program and delivery available to meet your needs and schedule.

RWU Launches Innovative Graduate Certificate in Real Estate

Far from merely buying and selling homes, the field of real estate is expanding rapidly and the factors that impact the ability to access, afford, build, and sustain housing are incredibly complex. To address these factors, Roger Williams University and the Cummings School of Architecture have developed an innovative Graduate Certificate in Real Estate. The program offers wide-ranging coursework that spans topics in design, finance, management, construction, regulatory affairs, environmental conditions, and social policy. Additionally, the certificate addresses the impact of real estate on individuals, households, and communities in terms of access to education, economic opportunity, and safe environments.
