If you have any questions, please contact the Program Chair, Terri Barber, at terri.barber@viu.ca.

Please be aware that classes start using textbooks and materials immediately, which includes accessing publisher software. Students will need to have all their courses’ required texts on the first day of class. We will cover any questions you have about textbooks at the program orientation.

Please note some texts come bundled with required access codes/publisher software. These have been noted on your text list. You may not want to purchase these texts as used books, as you will then need to contact the appropriate publisher to purchase access codes. Some codes may only be available with the purchase of a text.
