Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at Bowling Green State University.

We are a dedicated and vibrant community of scholars and students. We are proud of the 90-plus years the college has been providing the fundamentals of a liberal arts education at BGSU.

The multidisciplinary education that distinguishes the college prepares students for the dynamics of the 21st century, where they are likely to have 12-15 jobs over a lifetime. Our faculty and staff are helping our students navigate their pathway to success through integrative teaching, experiential opportunities such as undergraduate research, service learning study abroad and internships and a commitment to academic and career advising.

Here students discover the tools and support necessary to tackle complex problems, to appreciate the world, and to transform their world regardless of the major they choose. The focus is on thinking; our students gain a strong foundation of knowledge and skills, and develop high-impact practices that prepare them to succeed on their very own unique career and life path.

Because of the expansive opportunities provided, our graduates are prepared to make a difference in their communities and the world.

Raymond A. Craig, Ph.D.
Dean, BGSU College of Arts and Sciences
