The Property major focuses on ownership, development, management and the occupation of land and buildings. You will learn about the valuation and management of assets and the people, processes and finance related to the property industry.

Just as the property industry embraces both buildings and commerce, so too do studies in property. You will undertake subjects in everything from economics and finance, property valuation and management to development, construction, urban planning and law.

Drawing upon the multidisciplinary approach of the Bachelor of Design, the major builds your problem-solving skills and enables you to assess issues relating to land and buildings from a broader context.

Applicants for this major must have completed Units 3 and 4 Mathematical Methods or equivalent.


Graduates of this major find employment in the following roles:

  • Land economist
  • Property analyst
  • Property developer
  • Property investment adviser
  • Property manager
  • Property valuation.*

This major can lead to further study in the Master of Property at Melbourne.

*Once you have completed the Bachelor of Design with a major in Property, you will need to complete the two-year Master of Property or a Graduate Diploma in Property Valuation plus undertake additional required professional experience in order to become a registered property valuer.
