Notable programs

BGSU is known for its American Culture Studies (ACS) Department, considered to be one of the top American Studies programs in the country. The department draws students to its undergraduate and graduate programs from across the nation and around the world. Students can earn a Bachelor's, Master's and a Doctorate in ACS at BGSU. ACS maintains an interdisciplinary approach to shape its degree programs, constructed to allow ACS students to take courses from most of the departments in the College of Arts and Sciences.


BGSU's Popular Culture Department is perhaps the most unique component of the university. Not only is POPC the first and only department of its kind in the country, but its founder, Dr. Ray Brown, also established The Journal of Popular Culture and the national Popular Culture Association, both of which are widely known and respected to this day. By extension, BGSU also has quite an extensive popular culture library, along with a music library which contains over 700,000 titles (mostly on vinyl), making it the third-largest collection of popular music in the world. The Music Library and Sound Recordings Archives are housed on the 3rd floor of Jerome Library. While the collections support the research endeavors of BGSU students in the College of Musical Arts, the Department of Popular Culture, and the American Culture Studies program, the music collections are accessible by request to any interested researcher. However, most of the fiction titles that the University owns are in the Popular Culture Library, and students are unable to take them out of the building. This policy preserves materials that have become more important to researchers as second- and third-generation interpretations of comic books have become popular on- and off-screen. The Popular Culture Library also has an extensive collection of independently produced zines covering a wide subject area. Additionally, the Jerome Library is also home to the Historical Collection of the Great Lakes whose collections include materials related to commercial shipping, shipbuilding, navigation, maritime law, commercial fishing, shipwrecks, yachting, labor history, popular literature, freshwater ecology, recreation, and the history of Great Lakes ports.


BGSU hosts The Center for Family and Demographic Research (CFDR), an NIH-funded population research center dedicated to research, training, and service in demography. The CFDR integrates demographic methods, data, and perspectives with other social scientific approaches to understand the well-being of children and families. A special focus of research by CFDR affiliates addresses the public health and social problems facing at-risk children, adolescents, and families. The CFDR consists of a highly energized, research-active faculty from several disciplines, including Sociology, Geography, Psychology, History, Human Development and Family Studies. The CFDR is in a growth mode and developing momentum from both new faculty hiring and success in obtaining federal funding. The faculty researches topics related to the health and development of children, adolescents and families. We capitalize on the strength of CFDR faculty and focus on themes of adolescent development, immigration, health and mortality, and family structure and the well-being of children and adults. Much of the research conducted under the aegis of CFDR focuses on high risk populations, and involves multidisciplinary and multimethod investigations that have policy relevance. We emphasize the integration of demography with broad social scientific perspectives to maximize the identification of mechanisms underlying demographic events and thus provide a basis for public policy formulation.


BGSU also has one of the top Sport Management programs in the United States. BGSU offers both undergraduate and graduate programs accredited by The North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM) and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) through The School of Human Movement, Sport, and Leisure Studies. Degree programs are split into two divisions: the Kinesiology Division offers undergraduate majors in Dance, Exercise Specialist, Human Movement Science, and Physical Education Teacher Education. The Sport Management, Recreation, and Tourism Division offers undergraduate majors in Athletic Training/Clinic Management, Recreation, Sport Management, and Tourism. The Graduate Program includes specializations in Developmental Kinesiology (biomechanics, exercise physiology, exercise psychology, motor learning and motor development, physical education teacher education, and sport psychology), Sport Administration, and Leisure and Tourism.


The university's Ph.D. program in Industrial-Organizational Psychology is ranked #3 in the nation (behind Michigan State and Minnesota and ahead of Penn State and Illinois) by the U.S. News and World Report.[2] BGSU's I-O psychology program was founded by noted I-O psychologists Robert Guion and Patricia Cain Smith. Its graduates have gone on to success in academia, private industry, and government.


BGSU has a thriving Canadian Studies program, one of the largest in the United States in terms of the number of courses offered and students enrolled. The Canadian Studies Center educates students and the public about the importance of our trade, security, and cultural relationships with America's neighbor to the north. Students can earn a Canadian Studies minor which provides an international perspective and prepares them for work in a globalizing economy. The Center for Environmental Programs is part of the newest school at BGSU: The School of Earth, Environment, and Society (SEES). The school is a combination of the Center for Environmental Programs, Geology, and Geography. Providing a multi-disciplinary approach better prepares students to contribute society.


The Center for Photochemical Sciences was established at BGSU in 1985. The Center focuses on the study of the interaction of light with physical, chemical, and biological systems, and on the quest for practical application of that basic knowledge, which stimulate new technology.


BGSU also hosts Wood County Corps, which is an AmeriCorps program (often referred to as the domestic Peace Corps), currently located at 204 South Hall. Wood County Corps is a team of committed college-aged students and community members making the community safer, helping a child get a real education, or protecting the environment. Whatever the interest, there is an AmeriCorps program that needs the courage, the skills, and the dedication of community members who have the outstanding opportunity to do something unique in service to the community. Each year, more than 75,000 members serve with AmeriCorps programs in every state in the nation. The Bowling Green State University Wood County Corps is proud to have been a part of this great National Service program since September of 2005. We are proud to have this program as an offering connected with the university. It affords participants the opportunity to give back to the community while receiving a modest living allowance and earning an education award.


BGSU’s doctoral program in history is one of the few in the country that focuses on policy history—the integration of political and institutional history with social and cultural history—to examine the context, implementation, and unintended consequences of policy decisions.


For the fourth consecutive year in 2007, BGSU was listed for its residential living/learning communities in U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” under “Programs to Look For,” a section of the guide that notes “outstanding examples of academic programs believed to lead to student success.”[1] In BGSU’s residential learning communities, students with similar interests and goals live and study together. In the academically based communities students work closely with faculty members who teach classes and have offices right in the residence hall.


U.S. News & World Report has ranked the College of Business Administration’s undergraduate program as one of the Best Undergraduate Business programs in the country for the third year in a row. In addition, Princeton Review’s Best 282 Business Schools: 2007 Edition, features the College of Business Administration for its Master of Business Administration program.

Make us worthy sons and daughters
Adding to thy fame.

Years from now you'll be
Ever dearer in our hearts,

To the campus scene,

Of the by-gone days,
Hear our hymn dear Alma Mater
As thy name we praise.
