Everyone has that one teacher who truly made a difference in his or her life. Caring, mentoring, inspiring, and pushing you forward; that teacher helped you dream of the many possibilities for your future. Could you do the same? We know it.

Since 1873, Southeast Missouri State University has been known as a teacher’s college, but our curriculum is far beyond the 19th century. As an Apple Distinguished School with iPads, virtual reality, and 3D printers, our EDvolution Center is changing the way students learn, and our elementary, early, and special education programs will prepare you to mold the minds of the next generation. Gain real-world experience from your very first year of college as we prepare you for a career that matters.
