Thiel College


With environmental concern awareness increasing, environmental scientists will be needed to study environmental quality and provide means to living less environmentally harmful lives.

Our graduates have been employed in a variety of settings ranging from private consulting firms to state and federal environmental agencies. Many have chosen additional graduate level training either directly upon graduation from Thiel or later in their careers.
