Ph.D. Textbook Requirements Library

Welcome to the Ph.D. program’s Textbook Requirements Library. To help you make more informed buying decisions, each book is categorized in the following ways:

REQUIRED VS. SUPPLEMENTAL

  • REQUIRED: Obtaining this textbook is not optional for this course. It is essential to completing coursework.
  • SUPPLEMENTAL: Obtaining this textbook is optional. It might enrich your course experience and would be a useful resource, but it is not absolutely essential to completing coursework.

STRICT VS. FLEXIBLE EDITION

  • STRICT: This book must be obtained in the edition specified.
  • FLEXIBLE: While a certain edition of this book is suggested, other editions are also permissible and would not impede your learning.

PURCHASE RECOMMENDED

  • This book is either required for additional courses OR is highly recommended to obtain as a desk copy. We recommend you actually purchase and own, rather than rent, this text.
  • Any text that is not designated as “Purchase Recommended” could presumably be rented, assuming that particular book is available for rent through Amazon, Chegg or similar service.

Please note that course professors have up to one month prior to a session’s start date to update a book’s edition. Therefore we recommend waiting until then to order your textbooks for an upcoming class.
