West Los Angeles College is an accredited California Community College offering paths to university transfer, career education and courses for personal or professional growth. It occupies 70 park-like acres overlooking Culver City, Marina Del Rey and Greater West Los Angeles. On a clear day, from the highest points on campus, you can see the Pacific Ocean. With an active student population of nearly 12,000 regular and extension students, our 110 full-time faculty, more than 300 hourly faculty and 112 classified staff create an educational environment unique in Southern California.

Our Dental Hygiene program is a national model and extremely competitive to enter. We have the only American Bar Association Approved Paralegal program in the Los Angeles Community College District. The campus boasts state of the art childcare and learning services to help students succeed in their studies. Our athletic fields have been host to Olympic events (the hammer throw, and track and field event at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games).

All students at West have the opportunity for success. The College awards more than 600 degrees and certificates annually in 39 different fields. Each year, West sends more than 300 transfer students to four year colleges and many West Associate degree and Certificate program graduates begin professional employment immediately after graduation in consumer education, engineering and industrial technologies, law and health.

Our students have gone on to the greatest of successes. More than 60% of our Associate Degree graduates each year transfer to four year colleges. Several of our former students are now faculty or staff members at West. Our athletes have gone on to professional sports, including NFL Hall of Fame inductee Warren Moon. A former President of the college was once a student at West.

West creates success through its innovative programs. The college offers traditional transfer and associate degrees through its academic programs as well as certificate and special programs. Each semester, the college offers nearly 1,000 classes in 12 different academic disciplines.

This was a great class!! Brian Asher was insanely knowledgable and a really engaging instructor. I wish I had taken a course like this 20 years ago, I would have made far better decisions with my money. I think the instructor really makes a difference in a course like this. He made the information come alive. I would not hesitate to take more courses with him. Plus he’s hilarious!

Birdwatching Basics (Remote Live)

I thought the Birdwatching Basics class was excellent, and just right for a newcomer to bird watching. The instructor was very enthusiastic and engaging. There were a lot of fun and interesting facts, as well as great bird photos, in the PowerPoint presentation. The class was not the full 3 hours (it's meant to be a lecture followed by an actual birdwatching walk, but the latter could not occur given the virtual setting), but I think it was just the right amount of time - I'd suggest the listing on CourseHorse be updated to reflect that it's more like 2 hours. I did take my own birdwatching walk afterward and I felt like I was able to see and hear with new eyes and ears after this class!

Enjoyed the class. I think the description should have said that it was going to just be 2 hours since the 3rd hour would have been an outdoor group bird walk had we been in a physical class. Instructor was good, though.

Rosie’s accent is extremely thick - it’s hard to understand her. However, you can tell she’s passionate about what she does and knows the business. She did her best and that why I gave her 4 stars.
