Over the course of nearly three years, the Covid-19 pandemic changed the ways in which education is taught across the globe. Specifically looking towards the Construction Management (CM) department at California State University San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) and its curriculum, this paper surveys and analyzes the shifts made to the major-based course load. The basis of this study is the research of the potential modification of the CM curriculum classes in order to accommodate past covid restrictions. Studies have shown that individuals have suffered under the new online-based learning standard. In an age of altering restrictions, the study conducted in this paper gathers information from both students and faculty on what they believe to be the best alternatives to traditional in-person, classroom learning and how the Construction Management department can aim to replicate that setting as best as possible. Through a student survey and faculty interview, questions were asked about preferences of course structure during Covid in order to establish a standard, baseline solution for modified learning within the CM curriculum. This standard was determined to be in-person and masked. An alternative option of a hybrid course where there is online coursework, accompanied by in-person meetings was also preferred.
