The philosopher Alfred North Whitehead tells us "the task of the university is the creation of the future." From art to advertising, from theatre to theology, Potter College of Arts & Letters is hard at work doing precisely that--creating the future.

We think that the best way to build the future is with some ideas we've learned from the past, ideas about what really works in higher education. First of all, quality education begins with an outstanding faculty. Our dedicated professors and small classes provide excellent instruction rooted in concern for individual students.

We also hold to another proven idea, namely that a solid education in the liberal arts is the best preparation for a changing world. Today's students face a fascinating challenge--preparing themselves in the 2000s for careers which will progress through the 21st Century. The way to do that is by mastering the skills of analysis and communication which are central to the liberal arts.

Both tradition and technology are thriving in Potter College. Contact us for more information about our programs.
