Program Mapper & Guided Pathways

There's a path for everyone at West!

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 course catalog more user friendly. Program Mapper is how we do it. 

Program Mapper is an interactive map that can help you plan your educational and career goals. West Los Angeles College has seven (7) Career and Academic Pathways (CAPs) for you to choose from.

  1. Applied Technology & Computer Science
  2. Arts & Humanities
  3. Behavioral & Social Sciences
  4. Business
  5. Climate Studies & Environmental Justice
  6. Health Sciences
  7. STEM

Each of these CAPs are a group of similar programs designed to help you select a degree or certificate 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 Program Mapper and click a 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.
