There's a path for everyone at West!
Guided Pathways at West Los Angeles College is committed to clarifying the path for you!
A key part of this is presenting your degree and certificate information in a way that is easy-to-understand, relevant to your needs, and makes the academic program sections of the catalog more user friendly. The Program Pathways Mapper or Program Mapper is how we do it.
Program Mapper is an interactive map that can help you plan your educational and career goals. Each program at West Los Angeles College is found in one of six (6) Career and Academic Pathways (CAPs). Each CAP is a group of similar programs designed to help you select a program of study and speed your progress towards completion. You will also find information on occupations and careers commonly associated with each program, including typical wages and the labor market demand for California.
To get started, visit the Program Pathways Mapper and click the CAP to see all of the credit and non-credit degrees and certificates found in that pathway, along with program descriptions, program learning outcomes and career information. Choose your degree to see a planned sequence of required and elective classes.
