GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College students will be able to run both sides of the “house” in the restaurant business thanks to a new agreement between the four-year Pennsylvania college and the American Academy of Culinary Arts at Pittsburgh Technical College.
Students will spend three years at Thiel College and a year studying culinary arts at the suburban Pittsburgh Technical College, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration and a culinary certificate. Graduates can earn a culinary arts, baking and pastry, or custom culinary arts certificate.
“I am very happy to announce that Thiel College and Pittsburgh Technical College have signed an articulation agreement for a joint business degree and culinary certificate program,” Thiel College Professor of Business Angelo Giannini said. “PTC’s culinary division has new and state-of-the-art kitchens with an outstanding culinary staff, giving our business students a wonderful culinary background to complement their business education. We, at Thiel, look forward to many years working with the people at the Pittsburgh Technical College.”
The agreement takes effect immediately.
“The affiliation with Thiel College gives Pittsburgh Technical College graduates broader choice when it comes to continuing their education,” Pittsburgh Technical College executive vice president George Pry said. “Our graduates now have access to a wider selection of bachelor’s degree programs, beyond those we offer.”
