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.

Chris Bonomo '18
Long Island native Chris Bonomo is a Service Scholar and a member of the men's rowing team. He was drawn to Fisher for several reasons including the size, the friendly people he met early on, the solid academic programs, and the Service Scholar Program. The beautiful campus helped him make his decision as well.
He said he has gotten to know a lot of good people really well since he started, and the small size also makes it easier for him to connect with his professors.
So far, his favorite memory was attending the football season opener. His favorite course is his Research-Based Writing class where he feels like he has a lot of freedom to explore writing topics and cover what he's interested in.
His advice to anyone thinking about a small school experience is to visit Fisher to see why it would be a perfect choice for them.
