FISHER COLLEGE : A LIFE LONG MEMORY

Curious, Intrepid, Creative, Unconventional, and Community-minded, are some of the key features of the college. When I entered college it was full of students who are inspired to put theory into practice, drive change, and make their mark on the world. Thus I was sure that I will surely get success after studying from this place. I applied to this college with the help of a common application form.


Course Curriculum - 

Communication and Media Studies is an interdisciplinary program that combines courses in communication, advertising, public relations, and journalism. My curriculum considers media industries and their relationship to culture and society, and the understanding of how communication works. The program also emphasizes the development of critical thinking, professional writing skills, and promotes effective oral communication.
