An Education with Breadth and Depth
All of our academic programs can be completed in four years. They provide a strong foundation that prepares you for a career, a core of liberal arts classes that stretch your mind and elective courses that allow you to individualize your education.
Help for Undecided Majors
Take a Career Discernment Seminar after you're admitted, before classes begin. In the fall, choose an exploratory program in a discipline like history or biology without locking yourself into a specific field of study.
Extensive Career Guidance — For Life
Whether you need help in career decision-making, internship planning, job-hunting or networking, get help before, during and any time after graduation from Thiel.
Thiel is one of the least expensive private colleges in Western Pennsylvania — and with our comprehensive scholarships and financial aid we are often less expensive than regional public schools.
Ways to Showcase Skills
With our co-curricular transcript and e-Portfolio system, you can demonstrate in a tangible way to future employers and professional schools what you've learned and accomplished.
Ninth-Semester Tuition Discount
Sometimes students need an extra semester to finish their degrees because of opportunities like internships, service learning or study abroad. These “extras” are an important part of the college experience and Thiel is making them affordable for students by significantly reducing tuition in the ninth semester - qualifying students receive the alumni tuition discount of 60%!
Our graduates can take additional classes with a 60 percent tuition discount in existing classes with available seats. And don't forget that networking with more than 10,000 Thiel alums will yield amazing advantages in your profession!
