Grounded and Confident Graduates

At Southeast, your education is a partnership between what you learn in class and what you get to do in real-world experiences. We know the key to having you ready for your first day on the job is to give you the opportunities so you are prepared.

Whether your future profession will see you performing on stage, participating in global policy discussions in Washington, D.C., or doing research in the subarctic or on sharks off the coast of Africa, at Southeast, you’ll have more than your degree already on your resume.


Visual and Performing Arts students produce more than 100 events each year where they’re responsible for creating the art, the performances, the sets, the costumes, the advertising, and in some cases even the musicals!

Students from across disciplines get to put their business ideas to the test at Catapult Creative House, a business incubator where they run their own businesses, offer catering, exhibit art shows, design apps, clothes and so much more!

Cape has two world-class hospitals providing clinical experiences. Plus, we have more than 100 medical partners throughout the region and in St. Louis that offer students experience in healthcare, counseling and even preveterinary.

Education students are in the classroom as soon as possible, gaining field experience in local schools or schools around the world. Plus, benefit from our partnership with Apple in our EDvolution Center or with NASA’s Johnson Space Center and our Core Academy.

STEM students know the field relies heavily on research. Southeast is unique in that you get research opportunities with faculty as an undergraduate! We also offer an annual student research conference and undergrad student research grants.

Where else will you get experience? With Athletic teams, the Historic Preservation Field School, live webcasts, SEcreative PR Agency, University affiliates like the Autism Center, Audiology Lab, and the Center for Environmental Analysis. See more!
