Southeast faculty and students actively employ a variety of molecular techniques in research. Our curriculum is designed to foster critical thinking about microbiology, molecular biology, and genetics, along with a familiarity with the primary scientific literature in these fields. In classes and independent research you can learn skills in microbiology, immunobiology, gene cloning, sequencing and characterization, bioinformatics analysis, protein biochemistry, organismal physiology and this list goes on. Graduates from this program can go on to post-graduate study, or directly to employment in laboratory research careers. If you are looking for an academic home that will nurture you toward your goals and allow you to develop the skills you need to succeed, it's Southeast.
If your future is in STEM Education, Southeast is perfect. The Conservation Campus at South County Park, in Cooperation with the Department of Conservation, provides Southeast Missouri State University students access to the resources and personnel at this facility. For pre-service teachers, there is a tremendous variety of conservation-related classroom material available.
The Southeast Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC), run by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education here at Southeast, offers workshops for teachers in the area. Pre-service teachers may attend at greatly reduced rates. It's a great way to get hands on experience applicable to the classroom.
Our students also work in the Edvolution Center, a technology and resource facility that is state-of-the-art for students, faculty, staff, and area teachers.
Those outside of our University community are eager to help students learn through internships and many students go on to full-time employment through their internship experiences.
