Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences
Since 1929, the College of Arts and Sciences at BGSU has offered innovative and engaging academic programs to the students at Bowling Green State University, educating young leaders through a rich liberal arts curriculum and offering areas of study in the sciences that take you from the depths of the Great Lakes to the farthest corners of the universe. All of our programs feature advanced equipment for research and learning.
Although we're BGSU's largest college, we pride ourselves on the personal attention we afford students. The College advising staff is available to help undecided students determine the major that's right for them, explore career options, schedule classes, and plan ahead so they can graduate on time. Faculty advisors in each of our departments are also available to advise their majors about internships, co-ops, courses, graduate school, and careers as well as talk to them about their long-range aspirations and immediate concerns.
A WORLD OF INDIAN MUSIC
By day, Dr. Srinivas Melkote teaches media production and studies in the School of Media and Communication. But on Sundays, he becomes a radio DJ, hosting what is probably the only live show in northwest Ohio devoted to Indian music. With India’s long history and many distinct regions, religious traditions and dialects, it provides a never-ending source of material.
Melkote relishes it all. For the last 16 years, he has shared his vast collection of music with listeners to “Music of India and Its Diaspora,” which airs weekly from 2-4 p.m. on WBGU-FM, Bowling Green State University’s campus radio station, except during basketball season. The show is an education in itself, presenting a curated array of musical styles and time periods and, as its name indicates, music from Indians living around the world. Read More
PELINI ANT RESEARCH PROVIDES LONG-TERM LOOK AT EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
The world of forest ants may provide a macrocosm of the complex reactions and interactions among species affected by global climate change, according to a research project involving BGSU biologist Dr. Shannon Pelini.
As escalating amounts of carbon dioxide are introduced into the atmosphere, a chain reaction is induced, leading to increasingly warmer temperatures, Pelini said. This is taking place at an alarming rate, making it more important than ever that we understand how climate change will affect our natural world. Read More
MILLS NAMED TO WORKING GROUP ON AIR SERVICE TO SMALL COMMUNITIES
Dr. Russell Mills, a Research Fellow at the University’s Center for Regional Development and faculty member in political science, has been named to the Working Group on Improving Air Service to Small Communities of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
DOT is looking to help smaller communities attract and retain air service so that residents of smaller communities like Toledo can enjoy direct, nonstop air service, and to bolster businesses’ interest in remaining in or relocating to these communities.
The announcement was made Dec. 19 by Acting Assistant Secretary for Aviation and International Affairs Jenny T. Rosenberg. Read More
