MAP Resources

Major Academic Plans

MAPs demonstrate how first-time, first-year students might obtain a degree by completing 120 units of required coursework in four years. Transfer MAPs demonstrate how students with at least 60 units of approved transfer credit might graduate by completing an additonal 60 units in 2 years. MAPs are intended to offer general program pathways toward graduation and should be considered degree planning resources that students may use in coordination with Academic Advising and DARS planning.

A MAP is an opportunity to highlight a program's required coursework; include specific courses when they are required to complete the program, but leave General Education and Elective options open to student choice. If students must choose a concentration, departments should provide a MAP for each concentration. 4-year MAPs should add up to a minimum of 120 units, and 2-year MAPs for transfer students should add up to a minimum of 60 units.

To view a specific program's MAP(s), select a degree or academic program.
