A Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Graduate College of Bowling Green State University.

As the home to all graduate programs on campus, we collaborate with the other BGSU colleges to develop superior graduate programs, admit strong graduate students, and assure high quality graduate faculty who mentor our students.

This is an exciting time for graduate education as we attend to the challenges of our high tech, professionally dynamic society. In doing so, we prepare our graduate students to be productive members of our communities who contribute to the common good. We have doctoral students who are mentored to become strong academics and contribute to new knowledge. Likewise, many of our master’s students participate in professionally-oriented master’s degree programs in order to apply their skills immediately to address societal challenges. Our professionally-oriented programs are designed to enroll both full-time and part-time students who wish to study while simultaneously working. We welcome all learners who are on different academic and professional paths.

The Graduate College is excited about the diversity of students among our graduate student body. They have traveled from all over the US and the rest of the world to study here. Our students represent a diversity of cultures, religions, gender orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability differences. All are welcome here to study, create and apply new knowledge at the graduate level.

Welcome!
Simon Morgan-Russell, Interim Dean
