There's a path for everyone at West!

Explore with the Program Pathways Mapper or view the "Map" [.pdf format] for your specific major to learn all that West has to offer!

The Program Pathways Mapper is a customized visual representation of the Academic Programs in the West Los Angeles College catalog. You will find it organized by Learning and Career Paths, groups of similar programs that are designed to help you select a program of study and speed your progress towards completion. You will find information on occupations and careers commonly associated with each program, including typical wages and the labor market demand for California.

Each Path allows you to explore a set of program maps that show a semester-by-semester path from program entry to completion. You will also find videos and program student learning outcomes that will deepen your understanding of each program and Pathway, helping you build confidence in your program choice.

As part of Guided Pathways at West Los Angeles College, we are committed to clarifying the path for our students. A key part of this is presenting the program information in a way that is easy-to-understand, relevant to the students' needs, and makes the educational programs section of the catalog more user friendly.
