higher learning meets higher purpose

Ambrose is a Christian university in Calgary, Alberta, that offers programs in Arts and Science, Business, Education, Ministry and Seminary, that are rigorous, relevant and accredited for today's most demanding careers.

Small class sizes promise one-on-one interaction with our faculty who bring a Christian context to all aspects of learning to help you develop skills to lead, communicate and overcome objections in the world.

Ambrose University: 
Where higher learning meets higher purpose.
