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.

Kanwischer, who was named director after Dr. Katerina Rüedi Ray stepped down from the position in May, is actively promoting this vision as the school incorporates design thinking, social responsibility and entrepreneurship into the curriculum.
