The Management M.B.A., Leadership M.B.A. for non-business majors, Master of Science in Physician Assistant and the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology are in place and will be joined by a Master of Arts in Counseling in the fall of 2022. In addition to its new streamlined master’s degree programs, the College is home to a unique affiliation with Sharon Regional Medical Center and will begin offering a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. New undergraduate programs in environmental safety management, data analytics, public policy, exercise science and sports management join traditional programs such as education, business administration, psychology, biology, math, computer science and neuroscience.

The recent academic expansion will be matched over the next two years with more than $16 million in construction and infrastructure improvements to support the academic and athletic programs.

The first phase of the work began in late 2020. All together $3.2 million in local contracts were awarded during the first phase. Phase I improvements in the Rhodehouse Science Building will unfold over this academic year, with the graduate floor opening in July 2021, just in time for the launch of the Physician Assistant graduate program and the second year of the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. The substantial renovation of the Rhodehouse Science Building and the Academic Center, the largest academic building on campus, will create innovative lab and classroom spaces. The physician assistant program facilities will include a new cadaver lab. The total scope of the project should be complete by August 2022. Thiel also has a new bachelor’s degree program in data analytics. These new programs combine with the College’s strong curriculum in many traditional majors to give students myriad options to reach their full potential. Graduates from the College’s accounting, education, neuroscience and religion programs typically have 100 percent job or graduate school placement.  

The College, midway between Pittsburgh and Cleveland, is home to a diverse student population, small class sizes and committed faculty. The campus is in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania near bike and hiking trails, state and local parks, and outdoor amenities.
