Potter College of Arts & Letters takes as its primary area of scholarly concern the study of men and women--their past, present, and future, as well as their aesthetic expression, metaphysical concerns, and social interaction. The College prepares students to enter a wide range of careers and programs of advanced study. A diverse and distinguished faculty provides excellent instruction in some twenty disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and visual and performing arts. The twelve departments combined offer some 27 majors and 32 minors, including five interdisciplinary programs. And in cooperation with Graduate Studies, the college offers graduate degrees in most departments. In addition, Potter College plays an important role in the university's Colonnade program.
