Bogardus received his bachelor's and master's degrees at Northwestern University in 1908 and 1909, respectively. He received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1911.
Immediately after earning his doctorate, Bogardus joined the faculty of the University of Southern California as a professor of sociology, helping to establish an independent sociology department there in 1915. He also developed a sociological principle known as the Bogardus Social Distance Scale.
In addition to his work in the field, Bogardus also engaged in many activities designed to strengthen the discipline of sociology through social organizations. In 1920, he founded Alpha Kappa Delta, the international sociology honor society and was national president of that organization from 1924–1925, 1926–1927, and 1946-1947. In 1929, he co-founded the Pacific Sociological Association. In 1931, he served as president of the American Sociological Society. He is one of the honorees of the California Social Work Hall of Distinction.
