Real estate is a hands-on business. While the courses offered at WSU provide students with the technical knowledge necessary for a solid start in the profession, there is no substitute for practical experience. That is why we encourage all our students to take advantage of the numerous internship and part-time job opportunities available at local real estate firms.
In additional to gaining invaluable real-world experience in their chosen fields, students can earn credit toward their real estate degrees through the cooperative education program. Contact the WSU Cooperative Education office to find out more.
