The city's population was 17,741 during the 2010 U.S.

census, and its micropolitan area's population was 37,191.

Western Kentucky University Confidence: 77% Arrow up

Western Kentucky University is a public university in Bowling Green, Kentucky, United States.

It was founded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1906, though its roots reach back a quarter-century earlier.

In the fall 2011 semester, enrollment was approximately 21,000.

Bachelor's degree Confidence: 74% Arrow up

A bachelor's degree (from Middle Latin baccalaureus) or baccalaureate (from Modern Latin baccalaureatus) is an undergraduate academic degree awarded by colleges and universities upon completion of a course of study lasting three to seven years (depending on institution and academic discipline).

In some institutions and educational systems, some bachelor's degrees can only be taken as graduate or postgraduate degrees after a first degree has been completed.

In countries with qualifications frameworks, bachelor's degrees are normally one of the major levels in the framework (sometimes two levels where non-honours and honours bachelor's degrees are considered separately), although some qualifications titled bachelor's degrees may be at other levels (e.g.

MBBS) and some qualifications with non-bachelor's titles may be classified as bachelor's degrees (e.g.

the Scottish MA and Canadian MD).

Doctorate Confidence: 74% Arrow up

A doctorate (from Latin docere, "to teach") or doctor's degree (from Latin doctor, "teacher") or doctoral degree (from the ancient formalism licentia docendi) is an academic degree awarded by universities that is, in most countries, a research degree that qualifies the holder to teach at the university level in the degree's field, or to work in a specific profession.

There are a variety of doctoral degrees, with the most common being the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), which is awarded in many different fields, ranging from the humanities to the scientific disciplines.

There are also some doctorates in the US, such as the Juris Doctor (JD), Doctor of Medicine (MD) and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), which are generally regarded internationally as professional degrees rather than doctorates, as they are not research degrees and no defense of any dissertation or thesis is performed.

Many universities also award honorary doctorates to individuals who have been deemed worthy of special recognition, either for scholarly work or for other contributions to the university or to society.
