About Ambrose University

In addition to training leaders for ministry, Ambrose University offers accredited degrees in arts & science, education, and business. Our Seminary offers graduate-level degrees and programs in ministry, theology and biblical studies. These disciplines are united by the quest for knowledge, wisdom, virtue, and service.

    Our institution is backed by close to 100 years of higher education in Canada and supported with devoted leadership and board of governors. Read about our mission, history or leadership or visit the campus to learn more.


    Why Ambrose?

    Ambrose is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuut' ina, and the lyarhe Nakoda. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is "Mohkinstsis" which we now call the City of Calgary. The City of Calgary is also home to Metis Nation of Alberta, Region Ill.
