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.

Kaitlyn Mannix '14
Kaitlyn Mannix graduated from Palmyra-Macedon High School and came to Fisher with a nursing career in mind.
The Service Scholar is an active member of Students With A Vision (SWAV), the Student Nursing Association, and is a Student Ambassador. She is also an employee of the Fisher Fund phone-a-thon, and a member of the Honors Program.
She chose Fisher because of the Nursing program, which features state-of-the-art technology and clinical rotations that she says made her feel prepared for the real world.
Orientation was her most memorable experience because of all of the planned activities and the way she felt welcomed by the College.
