Learning Liberal: A Look at SUNY Potsdam's Strong Liberal Arts Beginnings

19720427 Senate Report.png

The term "liberal arts" presents a rather ambiguous meaning, sometimes referring to an academic degree program, and sometimes referring to a school of thought that encompasses areas of knowledge ranging from history, language arts, philosophy, and science, among others. 

Originally an institution that specialized in teacher and music education, SUNY Potsdam's history of liberal arts, dating back to the 1960's (when the SUNY establishment was still young) is short but very exciting.  This exhibit of archived material details the origins of the School of Arts and Sciences at SUNY Potsdam, first named the School of Liberal Studies, which was established in 1972.

Discover the School's impact on SUNY Potsdam's academic, social, and cultural atmosphere.
