Course and Textbook Information

There are 9 courses in our program. Watch the videos below to learn about each course and what to expect. The required textbooks are listed below for each course video. You may consider buying your books instead of renting when they are used in more than one class. Note that you will not need any of the additional materials (CDs, online content) for these books.  Older editions may be less expensive, but you may not have the same content than what is expected in your course. The total cost of books new from the ASU Bookstore is $530.75.

This information is for the Summer 2020 session and subsequent sememsters. This list will be updated as changes are made. The most accurate and up-to-date textbook information can be found in the syllabi for each class. If you have specific questions about a textbook, please reach out to program leadership.

*Books marked with an asterisk are used in multiple courses, so the cost is listed only once.
