    School Overview

    St. Ambrose University is a private, liberal arts institution that is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Davenport and is located in the central area of Davenport, Iowa. The mission of St. Ambrose University is “St. Ambrose University–independent, diocesan and Catholic–enables its students to develop intellectually, spiritually, ethically, socially, artistically, and physically to enrich their own lives and the lives of others”. SAU was founded in 1882 originally as a seminary and a school of commerce. The first bishop of Davenport, The Most Reverend John McMullen, established the school and the Diocese. Shortly after, Ambrose was incorporated as a literary, scientific, and religious institution. They decided that persons of any faith were allowed admittance. In 1908, the name was officially changed to St. Ambrose College to more accurately reflect the school’s mission. In 1968, SAU became co-educational and in 1977 added a master’s program in business administration. Since then, SAU established 15 more graduate programs.

    St. Ambrose offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates. Several professional master's degrees in subjects like business administration and criminal justice, are offered in a fuly online format.
