Thiel College

One of our largest programs, a communication major at Thiel College balances practice and theory and fosters a personal, dynamic, creative environment in which you will learn from mentors in the classroom and the studio or newsroom. From communication theory to mass media, the department is committed to developing in each student an appreciation and understanding for the dynamic, creative impulse to communicate persuasively and precisely with a variety of audiences.

The Communication Department is looking forward to moving into the new James Pedas Communication Center, which broke ground in May. This dynamic, integrated and technologically sophisticated facility will inspire individual and collaborative learning in a creative and open space.

By studying communication at Thiel College, you’ll be able to:

  • Participate in campus media, including a newspaper, yearbook, radio station and TV channel
  • Benefit from one-on-one instruction with faculty who are media professionals
  • Make a difference while getting real-world experience through service learning
  • Explore the world with study abroad and cultural exchange trips in the summer
