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.

“I was lifting 500 pounds of luggage a day for $9 an hour. And I thought: ‘I have a degree, there is a problem.’ And I knew this was happening to a lot other people, too.”

While her days of loading luggage on the conveyor belt at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport are a far cry from her current position as a Detroit councilwoman, Ayers has held true to her roots, even after climbing to the top of a pool of more than 130 candidates who sought appointment to the high-ranking position.

CLASS PUBLISHES FUNDRAISING GUIDE FOR LAND TRUSTS

CLASS PUBLISHES FUNDRAISING GUIDE FOR LAND TRUSTS

Moving people from wanting to see land spared from development to actually donating money to help conserve it requires a skill set that many grassroots land trust groups do not possess.

But there are tangible steps that are effective in creating support, and Dr. Shannon Orr’s fall 2014 Environmental Management class is sharing that information through an academic paper in New Visions for Public Affairs, a student-run, peer-reviewed journal. “Fundraising during an Economic Downturn: Best Practices for Nonprofit Organizations” will be published in the May edition of the journal, just after the students graduate.
