Textbook List

The DMC program is specially designed so that students move through the program as a cohort completing 11 courses, eight of which are thematically-paired in blocks.

It is important that you order your textbook(s) for DMC courses as soon as they are updated and communicated, approximately one calendar month prior to the beginning of each term.

Important Note: Do not order your textbooks for future DMC courses you plan to take in subsequent terms as they are subject to change until confirmed for each term. Students should not order textbooks more than one month before the start of a course.
