The List: Recommended reading

Recommended reading lists are ubiquitous at university. They help students develop a shared, deep, ingrained knowledge that serves as the base for research.

In an academic setting, it is critical that students do not ignore their reading lists because they provide much-needed support during the writing process.

For researchers, authors, academia, and those working at a site, these books can act as guideposts, keeping them up to date on the current trends of their field. Listed here are the recommended undergrad, post-grad, and continuing education from various learning institutions.

These are lists recommended for prospective and current students and the required reading of individual institutions for study, including Ph.D. work.

It is a work in progress. For additions, deletions, and edits, please email [email protected].
