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.

Ashley Johnson '16
Ashley Johnson '16 came to Fisher from the Rochester area, where she attended Our Lady of Mercy High School. She is a Service Scholar, a member of the Teddi Committee, and is involved with the Student Activities Board.
Being a member of the Teddi Committee and attending the Teddi Dance for Love is one of Ashley's most memorable experiences here at Fisher. The biology major admits that her favorite class is any course that has to do with life sciences.
Ashley wants to tell incoming freshmen to step outside of their comfort zone. "Fisher is a new experience that has many opportunities. Don't be afraid to try something new, whether you join an organization on campus or take a class that interests you."
