The Fisher Education
Academic Programs at Fisher
Fisher offers a variety of challenging and rewarding academic programs that build a solid foundation to jump-start our students’ careers – it all starts right here.
Our faculty and staff help guide students from day one. They map out students' short- and long-term goals, helping them find their way through coursework and lessons both inside and outside of the classroom.
Our most popular majors for freshmen are:
- Sport Management
- Media and Communication (formerly Communication/Journalism)
Additional Educational Opportunities
Fisher is guided by the Basilian motto, "Teach me goodness, discipline, and knowledge." The College’s robust Service-Learning Program tackles all three of those characteristics.
Students can take a marketing course and work side-by-side with local business owners on their marketing plans, or they can enroll in a biology course working with high school students on a rooftop greenhouse at their school.
If your student has the travel bug, Fisher offers a wide variety of Study Abroad Programs in France, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Australia, England, Brazil, and many more. Condensed summer programs are also offered.

Dr. Jason Berman
Professor, Department of Management/Marketing
Dr. Berman came to Fisher in the spring of 1980 as a Visiting Instructor of Management, and has never looked back. Along the way, he discovered a capacity for connecting authentically with students, and he says that has been the culture of the College since he arrived.
He really enjoys watching the developmental transition that happens from freshman to senior year, and says there is "nothing more challenging or rewarding than to be able to promote that process by challenging young people to question and rethink who they really are and who they want to be."
Dr. Berman also believes the College has made an impact on the broader community through its service learning initiatives. But the greater impact of the College's commitment to service has been on the value of a Fisher education.
"Service to others is more than just something to put on your résumé. It is a way of life. Volunteerism adds meaning to your education and makes what you do during and after your college years matter. You learn that the true measure of leadership is not your list of personal accomplishments, but rather what you accomplish on behalf of others."
