Student Experience

professor teaching

St. Ambrose students experience a spirit of cooperation and generosity on our campus, which reflects the quality of life in the Quad Cities. They share classes with peers from the area who appreciate the convenience and flexibility we offer local residents, as well as with students who come here from locations across the country and around the world.

At St. Ambrose, we offer the support you want for a successful graduate school experience:

  • Small class sizes mean Ambrose students form tight relationships. They soon find they've got more than just the same classes in common; students bond over similar career goals and ambitions.
  • Faculty members are personally invested in your success: from your time in class, to graduation, and even after. Students receive individual attention, including regular mentoring by faculty.
  • The St. Ambrose Career Center supports you throughout the job seeking process. Counselors are on hand for resume review, interview practice, and career decision-making. Students also have access to the Center's wealth of career search resources.

All students have opportunities to take part in a range of service learning projects, including such experiences as volunteering at local parish health fairs and homeless shelters, screening for high blood pressure at soup kitchens and building homes with Habitat for Humanity. Graduate students can also take leadership roles on campus through professional organizations, the Graduate Student Government Association, and various clubs and student groups.
