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.

Chris Grassmann '17
Fisher appealed to him because of the amazing nursing program. "Every single person I talked to that came to Fisher or knew someone who did said they loved it, there were never any negatives."
In between his class schedule and his time leading campus tours, Chris enjoys the Nutella, fluff, and peanut butter toasted sandwiches at the Ward-Haffey Dining Hall.
His words of wisdom to incoming freshmen are: "Manage your time, but do not study too much. Have fun, meet new people, and be outgoing."
