School Mission

Fisk University produces graduates from diverse backgrounds with the integrity and intellect required for substantive contributions to society. Our curriculum is grounded in the liberal arts. Our faculty and administrators emphasize the discovery and advancement of knowledge through research in the natural and social sciences, business and the humanities. We are committed to the success of scholars and leaders with global perspectives.

Department of Life and Physical Sciences

Because we recognize that paradigm shifting discoveries occur at the interface of traditional disciplines in the academy, Fisk has integrated our natural science departments to provide students with an environment that fosters interdisciplinary thinking. Our department enjoys the scholarship of faculty in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Physics. Our undergraduate students work with creative investigators as well as committed teachers to foster critical thinking and their own independent work. Fisk also hosts MS programs in biology, chemistry and physics and is a founding co-partner with Vanderbilt University in the nationally recognized Fisk-Vanderbilt MS-PhD Bridge Program.
