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:
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.

Jeffrey Fahmer '14
Jeffrey graduated from West Seneca West Senior High School near Buffalo, and says that “it felt natural” to come to Fisher. His sister is a graduate of the College and he has felt like part of the Fisher family ever since her first day on campus.
Jeffrey, a nursing major, serves on the First Generation Scholarship Executive Board and as a Student Ambassador. He has spent a lot of time in the Rochester community as a First Generation Scholar, working with others to build a new playground in a low-income housing section of the city.
His favorite things about Fisher are the faculty, staff, and students – and he says there is always a familiar face.
