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.

Emily Jacque '16
Horseheads native Emily Jacque '16 is a Service Scholar majoring in psychology. She has been part of the Orientation Team, Colleges Against Cancer, and the Student Conduct Committee.
Her favorite class is Leadership, a course that is part of the learning community for Service Scholars. She has learned so much about the kind of leader she is and hopes to become after she leaves Fisher. It also allowed her to connect with her fellow Service Scholars.
Her advice: it's better to try out a club or activity and then decide it's not for you than to just not try it at all and have regrets. "This is the time to find out what you are really interested in, so take full advantage of the many opportunities Fisher has to offer."
