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:

» Majors, Minors, and Concentrations

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.

Study Abroad

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.

Emily Back

Emily Back '14

Sociology major Emily Back ’14 admits that she didn’t get too involved during her freshman year. She focused on her academics. But, by the time the year wrapped up, she and her roommate decided to put themselves out there and attended a few student organization meetings.

Today, she is on the Orientation Team as a Student Orientation Coordinator, is a Student Ambassador for the Office of Freshman Admissions, serves as President of the Student Activities Board, and was a Great Beginnings Ambassador.

She came to Fisher undeclared, and says the College’s Core Curriculum helped lead her to where she is today by making her more well-rounded.

She has traveled to Texas and beyond as a member of the campus community to attend different conferences, and spent time in London for an internship.

She says, “No matter what your major is, Fisher provides resources including internships and caring professors who want you to succeed. They get you where you need to be.”
