Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences
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.
Rentner Book on Sport Communication Challenges Readers to 'Make the Call'
Football players kneel during the playing of the national anthem. Athletic directors are found guilty of abusing young people. Parents worry about whether to allow their children to play football in light of the new knowledge about concussion dangers.

The sports world has become a microcosm of the issues facing society, from ethics to gender to health, race and social media.

BGSU Researchers Hope to turn Dredge into Useful Resource for Farmers
Northwest Ohio is on the clock. By mid-year 2020, a long-held practice on Lake Erie will come to an end.
Each year, eight Ohio harbors along the Lake Erie coast are dredged to keep shipping channels open, with 25 percent coming from Toledo Harbor, according to the Ohio EPA. The dredged material is dumped in the open waters of Lake Erie, which has been standard practice for some time. That practice, thanks to Ohio Senate Bill 1, passed in 2015, will come to an end on July 1, 2020.
Three researchers from Bowling Green State University and another from Wright State University have been tasked to come up with an agricultural solution to how to use the displaced dredge. Read More
