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.

Hilary Wilcox '17
Hilary Wilcox '17 graduated from Hugh C. Williams High School in Canton, NY. She loved Fisher thanks to the combination of great scholarships, the small size, and the beautiful campus.
Hilary wasted no time getting involved by joining Equestrian Club, Teddi Committee, and Investment Club. And she can often be seen - and heard - giving tours on campus.
She has been able to create some of the most memorable experiences meeting all of her friends, which she says now make up her own "Fisher Family!"
