There is no required textbook for this course. Students will be given a list of articles and book chapters that are available online through the SFU Library (Note: To download a book chapter from the library you must search the title of the book, not the title of the chapter.). As well, students must arrange to take and pay for Holland’s Self-Directed Search online (approximately $10 US).

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
