Books (text): Griffiths primarily. Reference (advanced): Landau&Lifshitz (vol.2, Classical theory of fields), Jackson, and others.
Course outline (broadly) --- electrostatics (Coulomb law to Gauss law), magnetostatics (Biot-Savart law to Ampere law) [integral and differential forms], time-dependent situations [Faraday law etc] ... ---> Maxwell equations in differential form. Perhaps glimpses of electromagnetic waves.
