A Doorway to Boston, a Bridge to the World At Fisher College, a private not-for-profit institution in Boston, we believe that college should be more than just higher education—it should be a life-changing experience, an introduction to a much larger world of possibilities, knowledge, and expectations. For more than a century, Fisher has been changing lives by providing students with the tools they need to compete successfully in today's challenging economy. Though built around the liberal arts, our majors and graduate programs reflect our expertise in practical fields like management, accounting, fashion merchandising, criminal justice, biology, information technology, and cybersecurity, to name a few. We believe in educating students through close intellectual engagement with our faculty, meeting together in small-group classroom settings, or with industry and business leaders through internships, guest lectures, and site visits. We take full advantage of the educational resources
