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.

Shante Hand-Fletcher '14
Shante Hand-Fletcher ’14 came to Fisher from Frankfort, NY to major in biology with a long-term goal of becoming a physician assistant.
During her time at Fisher, she has worked closely with department faculty on a variety of research projects, which will come in handy when she interviews for graduate programs.
She credits the biology faculty for being so supportive during her research, teaching her different lab techniques or helping her find a solution when something went wrong.
She plans to continue her research work for the remainder of her time at Fisher, and says she would encourage any biology major to pursue those opportunities.
