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.

As America’s aging dams come under scrutiny, Dr. James Evans, geology, finds himself increasingly called upon to lend his expertise to questions about their possible removal or rehabilitation. Evans, a national authority in hydrology, engineering geology and geological hazards related to dams, has been much in the news recently related to the controversy surrounding the Ballville Dam on the Sandusky River in Fremont. Although the dam has been found structurally unsafe and the Army Corps of Engineers, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the state’s Department of Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife Division have all approved its removal, a surprising development occurred that put that action into question.
