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.

Brent Lindsay

Brent Lindsay '16

Brent Lindsay '16 graduated from Victor High School and came to Fisher with a biology degree in mind. His favorite thing about the College are the small class sizes and small campus. He loves that he gets to meet everyone and say hello to his friends and professors while he travels from class to class.

Brent stays busy by being involved in activities such as Fisher Swingbirds (the College's new jazz band), along with the Fisher Players drama club. He is also involved with the Student Government Association and sits on the senate as a residential senator.

In addition, he has been an Orientation Team Leader, where he helped run events during orientation weekend for incoming freshmen. "Being able to help the freshmen transition into college is something that you can be proud you were a part of and you won't forget!"
