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.

Alexander Sausville '18
Standing tall at 6'0", Alex Sausville came to Fisher to be a member of the men's basketball team. The marketing program attracted him as well.
Not only is he a member of the basketball team, but he is also active with the Student-Athlete Mentor Club, which performs a lot of community service and projects throughout the academic year.
His favorite thing about Fisher is that "everyone knows everyone," and not surprisingly, his favorite memory so far has been his first basketball season. You'll find him in the dining hall often, but he's happiest on Taco Tuesdays.
To those thinking about Fisher? Alex says that if you're looking for a good education that you will also enjoy, Fisher's campus atmosphere is perfect for you.
