College of Arts & Sciences
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.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS UNDER THE MICROSCOPE
In matters of international relations, size matters, according to Drs. Neal Jesse, political science, and John Dreyer, an associate professor of political science at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and BGSU alumnus. They are the authors of a new book on comparative foreign policy titled “Small States in the International System: At Peace and at War,” published by Lexington Books.
Although the importance of the relative size of the players in international relations might seem obvious, Jesse and Dreyer’s research shows that both historically and today, large states like the U.S. and Russia tend to make foreign policy decisions based on the realist theory, which assumes that the smaller states they are dealing with are just like them — only smaller — and will react as they would.

OHIO PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN TOPIC OF FACULTY PODCAST
Drs. Melissa Miller and Russell Mills, political science, have launched a weekly podcast focused on the presidential campaign in America’s most important swing state.
In the first episode, Miller and Mills talk about Ohio’s pivotal role in the 2016 election, how Ohio’s economic performance will influence the vote, Trump’s attempts to find Reagan Democrats in the Buckeye State, Clinton’s advantage in on-the-ground organizing, and the potential for third-party candidates to influence the outcome in Ohio.
“Battleground Ohio: Assessing the 2016 Presidential Race” is available online. Read More
GLOBAL RESIDENCIES INVIGORATE GULDBECK’S ART
“As an artist who works frequently with an object-based studio practice, it may seem counterproductive to travel as much as I do,” said Mille Guldbeck, a faculty member in the School of Art. “However, the opportunities that exist at residency sites are worth any initial discomfort.”
When Guldbeck returned to teaching in the fall of 2015 after a full-year faculty improvement leave, she brought to her students and to her own practice the rich experience she gained in residencies around the world. “I have been able to share my new work as well as insights into what may prove beneficial to student scholars and artists,” she said.
Again this fall she returns to the classroom, after two international residencies in Iceland, where she lectured, exhibited and explored ideas.
