The Graduate School partners with Specialty Books, Inc. to provide participants with access to textbooks and other materials for some of our courses. All official booklist information is available by clicking on the buttons below.
Most evening and weekend courses require textbooks, and any material listed as required is integral to your performance in a class. Classes listing optional materials often incorporate them in different ways, so students many want to consult their class syllabus prior to purchasing any materials listed as optional. The School recommends that students purchase their textbooks in a timely manner, but only after a course is confirmed to run.
You may purchase your textbooks using one of these methods:
Just click on a button above to be taken to the online bookstore and follow the directions to checkout.
