As a student in any of our graduate programs, you'll experience a course of study that provides knowledge, research skills and practical experience, all with an ethical dimension. That's why we are known throughout Iowa and the Midwest for the excellence of our educational experience and the quality of our graduates.


Degree of excellence

Our graduates are respected for their professional competence, but their real edge in the marketplace comes from the integration of those skills with key leadership capabilities.

Your ability to think critically, approach problem solving creatively, write well, and develop sound solutions will sustain you as your professional career evolves and new careers emerge.

At St. Ambrose, you will apply these transferable skills at a more advanced level and become proficient at presenting ideas and arguing your case.


Class attributes

Our expert faculty members are very accessible and make sure you understand the material. Furthermore, interactive learning in class and in study groups makes graduate study at St. Ambrose engaging and interesting.

In particular, graduate students in the health sciences experience collaboration to a significant degree, both within their programs and, increasingly, across disciplines.

  • Multiple programs collaborated on the design and delivery of Ambrose's Master of Speech-Language Pathology program. This team-based approach prepares its graduate students to work on interdisciplinary teams.


Teaching teachers

"The faculty members are a presence in the Academy of Management. Aside from being published, they encourage their students to present papers, as well. What they teach is relevant and will help us get jobs with major employers. Local employers respect an Ambrose education." Maxine Wade '08, Doctor of Business Administration
