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.

Alex Ormond '18
Alex Ormond '18 is a media management major from Kennedy, NY. As a freshman, she immediately embraced Fisher's diverse choices of clubs and got involved by joining the Marketing Club, PRIMA (a student-run public relations/advertising firm), and Dance Club.
Alex's favorite course is Introduction to Public Relations because she is given the opportunity to apply what she learns in class to the business environment.
She was attracted to Fisher for its smaller size and location, and she loves the wonderful sense of community on campus. "When they say the 'Fisher Family,' they mean it! My roommates all became my best friends almost instantly."
Her one piece of advice to prospective students is to get involved and take advantage of every opportunity Fisher offers.
