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.

Chenisvel Nunez '17
Her favorite course is Juvenile Justice, for more than one reason. She enjoys the way her professor speaks so passionately about the topic thanks to her knowledge of how the juvenile justice system works. And everything she learns motivates her to go back to her neighborhood and help the local youth improve their own lives. Chenisvel also enjoys the variation of lectures, working in groups, and watching movies that are both informational and influential, which all make for a fun class.
Chenisvel says living in Rochester has provided her with opportunities beyond her college education. Over the summer, she completed a paid internship with the Urban Fellows Program, where she looked at and addressed many ongoing urban issues in Rochester.
