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.

Theologia Ladas '16
West Seneca West Senior High School graduate Theologia Ladas '16 chose Fisher for the close-knit community, the small class sizes, and the College's reputable School of Education.
She really enjoys her coursework, in particular, her Research Writing class, because the professor gives the students the freedom to write about topics they are truly passionate about. Theologia is perhaps most happy when she is doing her field work in the city's elementary schools.
"St. John Fisher has great connections with these schools, and when it comes times for me to apply for a job, I will already have the experience of working with many of them."
