College of Arts & Sciences
A World of Ideas
Welcome to the College!
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.

Nichter decodes Nixon in new book
As a graduate student trudging up the staircase leading from the basement at Williams Hall in the fall of 2004, he was also stepping out of the early 1970s, and one of the most troubling eras in American politics. For the countless hours he spent in the lower reaches of that building on the Bowling Green State University campus, Luke Nichter seemingly had been at the White House, in the Oval Office, along with Henry Kissinger, H.R. Haldeman, John Dean and Alexander Haig. And with President Richard M. Nixon. Read More
