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.

Briana Macaluso '16
Junior Briana Macaluso, a biology major from Cicero, made sure she took her time to look for small class sizes and relationships with professors when looking at colleges. Low and behold, she found that Fisher was the perfect fit.
Briana is a Student Ambassador, Biology Peer Mentor, and Captain on the Teddi Committee. By getting involved with Teddi, she has had a chance to create some of her most memorable times here at Fisher.
And, living in Rochester plays a big part in Briana’s college experience. She really enjoys checking out the local restaurants and attractions, but is also getting a good sense of the job opportunities here in case she decides to stay close after leaving Fisher.
