  • Overlooking Mark Twains mighty Mississippi River, Southeast Missouri State University is the kind of place that people across the globe imagine when they think of college. The beautiful campus is an eclectic mix of old and new. Classic limestone buildings blend harmoniously with contemporary structures. Southeast was recently named the safest campus in Missouri and among the safest in the nation by StateUniversity.com.

    Our academics combine the best of tradition with technology of the future. Career training and broad-based liberal arts education emphasize writing and critical thinking, which are required in all occupations. In addition, hands-on learning opportunities and internships in every major prepare you for your first job.

    With more than 1,600 undergraduate courses, we teach everything from the classics to robotics. This extensive curriculum offers unique opportunitiespre-medical students take fine arts courses; musicians confront computers; nutrition majors crunch numbers in statistics courses and scientists play the trombone.

    Across the curriculum, technology enhances learning in language labs, in the management of stock portfolios, in practicing the latest nursing techniques, in chemistry, in graphic design, in education, in sophisticated science labs and at the new River Campus.

    You may choose from more than 200 areas of study and many programs that have additional, prestigious accreditations from national and international organizations. This is important because it means you can study a variety of subjects, choose from numerous majors, and meet people who are pursuing a range of interesting careers. Unlike a liberal arts institution or an engineering school whose mission is very specific, you can stay at Southeast and change your mind about your major or enhance your career potential by adding a double or even a triple major.

    With an enrollment of more than 11,000, our academic programs blend the advantages of a large institution with an emphasis on small class sizes that makes learning interactive and fun.
