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.

NEW MAJOR COMPRISES PHILOSOPHY, POLITICS, ECONOMICS AND LAW
A new interdisciplinary major and minor in Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Law (PPEL) is now offered in the College of Arts and Sciences for students interested in addressing the complicated issues of our times. Students develop sharp analytical thinking skills as they address questions about how society should be and the right approaches to achieve those ends. For example, how should we respond to climate change? What does an ethical health care system look like? Should money have a role in politics? Is technology beneficial to human existence? What kind of economy is best? What is the role of government, and where does it get its authority?
BGSU’s PPEL major is the first offered at a public research university in Ohio. Read More
