This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
Now with a unique new icon made by whiterider (complete genius by the way, thankyou!)

It does not replace any major but it is cloned from the Philosophy Major (so has the same class times). Based on the class from the Harry Potter books and films.

Potions: As there is very little foolish wand waving in this class some people will hardly believe this is magic. Can you understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind and ensnaring the senses?

Class titles:
Potions equipment 1: Which way up the cauldron goes
Potions Equipment 2: Cutting the ingredients, not your fingers
Medical Potions: For the little and the big owwies in life
Emotional Potions: Potions that will make you laugh and cry
Cognitive Potions: Potions that effect… er… what was the question?
Physical Potions: Making things bigger, longer and orange.
Solutions to life’s problems 1: Poisons.
Solutions to life’s problems 2: Antidotes

u should try to hack in deeper and create a Prof. Snape so the student could meet him insted of any random prof.

I just think it's a cool idea!

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
That is alchemy's first law of equivelent exchange.

... In those days, we really believed that to be the one, and only, truth.

How to get Snape teaching your sim Potions

You will need SimPE for this to work.

First assign the major to any uni sim of your choosing. Wait until they go to class and come back having met two new professors that the game has randomly chosen. Note down those names.

Next go back to te neighbourhood linked to your university. In Create a Sim create your Snape. It does not matter what his personality, aspiration or name is (but if you call him anything other than 'Snape' make a note of that name as well)
Now exit the game.

Go into SimPE, load up your neighbourhood and go into Sim Surgery. Use the professor the game created as your patient sim and your Snape as your Archetype sim. Unclick all the boxes then press 'surgery'.

Now load up your snape-a-like professor in sim browser and change his name, personality, and everything else there is to offer. Go back into the game and you should have Snape as your sim's Potions Professor.
(Note I have never tested this since I got nightlife but it should still work)
(As with all SimPE usage you should backup your game before doing this)

My mind never wanders, it packs it's backpack, puts on it's boots and goes on a mountain hike.
