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.

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.

Sheldon Mitchell '14
As a biology major, Sheldon Mitchell ’14 conducted research on a strain of worms, overseeing several field studies that have developed his interests and fine-tuned his long-term goals.
He says he feels that the courses he has taken both in and outside of his major have helped him develop common sense and have made him a more critical thinker.
As a junior, he served as a peer tutor for freshmen, working with 70 students and department faculty.
He loves Fisher so much that he stuck around to work in the Office of Information Technology to help troubleshoot issues, giving him valuable experience for his minor in information technology.
