Why Ambrose

  • Image

Small Classes • Engaged Faculty

Classes at Ambrose are small enough that professors know your name and welcome your questions and ideas both inside and outside of class. In this close, connected learning environment, professors become mentors who can lend you vital support as you learn and explore options for your future. It's a quality of education that you just won't get at a larger university.

Ambrose is a university where faculty truly care about seeing you realize your dreams.

There is no wisdom without worship because worship integrates heart and mind...worship keeps our study, our learning, and research from being one-dimensionally cerebral.
