The world needs teachers. SEMO will equip you for the 21st century classroom.

SEMO has been preparing teachers for 150 years, but much has changed. Today, we’re equipping our teachers with the knowledge and experience to lead tomorrow’s classrooms. You’ll learn how to teach with technology from virtual reality to bots in our EDvolution Center, a one of its kind technology learning lab. Our EDvolution model of teaching and focus on 1:1 tech has made us an Apple Distinguished School. Our programs put you in front of your own class earlier and offer more field hours than most programs in the state. You want to inspire the next generation. We invite you to learn with the leader in education innovation.

  • The United States is facing a teacher shortage in all levels of the profession ensuring positions available in this high demand field.
  • Southeast has a rich tradition of preparing teachers. That history means we’ve built the partnerships and relationships to help our students get jobs through programs like EdHawk Scholars and Grow Your Own.
  • Our Education Learning Community and EDvolution technology model of teaching benefit SEMO students by helping them grow the skills our school districts tell us they’re seeking. We’re also the only school in the nation offering education communications courses.
  • Multiple field experiences give education majors varied experiences, so they know their right fit before they graduate.
  • For master’s degree students, we’re the only school in Missouri offering HyFlex degree options so your degree is truly designed for your schedule.
