Hi! What's the difference between a concentration, a minor, and the other type of area-of-interest program (EAS?)?
Larry Hermansen

If my school is letting me chose to do pass/fail for this past semester (I’m a transfer student) will this affect my conditional admission?
Priya Verma (NRES Department)
01:30:44
The concentrations are a bit more flexible than the minors. However, you can also double count units that are for a minor to count for you approved electives. This allows students who plan well to complete multiple minors.
Priya Verma (NRES Department)
01:32:24
We are also allowing students to take classes pass/fail this quarter. You should questions about admissions to https://www.calpoly.edu/admissions

Is it possible to have marine biology as a minor?
Priya Verma (NRES Department)
01:40:55
ENVM still has quite a bit of natural science/lab classes. I would say EESS has a less on the social science, economics, and policy management side of things
Priya Verma (NRES Department)
01:41:32
Yes, it is possible to create a biology minor that is focused in marine biology
