Finding Course Materials

Course Materials

At BUSSW each course has a Blackboard Learn site. Instructors post the course syllabus, announcements, handouts, and any other pertinent information on the course Blackboard site.

The course syllabus which is posted on the course’s Blackboard Learn site contains information on purchasing texts and accessing the supplemental course readings. The supplemental course readings are available via the Mugar Library, Course Reserves, or the course Blackboard Learn site.
