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.

Nicole and Karissa Hart '16
Nicole Hart ’16 is a special education and childhood education major. Her twin, Karissa ’16, not only shares the same look but also the same major, with a minor in Spanish.
Natives of Syracuse, both girls are also members of the Fisher lacrosse team, and it’s a sport they have been playing since they started attending school.
The Hart sisters say that their team—like so many of the teams, clubs, and other student groups at Fisher—is just like a family. They also look to Coach Linda Michele as a second mom.
During their freshman year, they were involved with a Special Olympics event that was hosted by the College.
