All of our programs feature advanced equipment for research and learning.
College of Arts & Sciences
Welcome to the College!
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.

ALUMNUS, FACULTY ACHIEVE FIRST LOOK AT BIOCHEMICAL PROCESS
Dr. Dennis Stuehr knew he had received an unusually strong undergraduate education in chemistry at BGSU when he got to graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and found himself more than prepared. Almost 35 years later, his faith in his alma mater was reconfirmed when he found at Bowling Green just the expert he needed to continue his research into the critical biological process of nitric oxide (NO) production.
Dr. H.

Their partnership is already yielding rich results of medical and biological importance. Read More
COATES CAPTURES CALIFORNIA PAST AND PRESENT IN TWO NEW WORKS
Two books by Dr. Lawrence Coates, chair of the English department, are being published this fall to acclaim. One a full-length novel and the other a novella, both are set in his native California, and both reveal veiled aspects of the Golden State, though in very different times and places.
"The Goodbye House," Coates' fourth novel, bears out the ancient Heraclitus' observation that "Nothing is constant but change." Cycles of prosperity follow times of need, landscapes are remade, and separation follows togetherness.
