Welcome to the College of Science, Technology and Agriculture at Southeast Missouri State University! Our primary mission in the College is to educate students at Southeast to help them take on the challenges of tomorrow. This is true not only for the students within the array of high-quality programs in the College but also for those students that that take our courses to support other programs. The College of Science, Technology and Agriculture is a major contributor to University Studies, the general education program at Southeast. All students at Southeast are likely to take at least three courses offered by faculty in the College of Science, Technology and Agriculture.
The college offers degrees in STEM fields, including agribusiness, biology, chemistry, computer science, commercial photography, cyber security, engineering physics, engineering technology, environmental science, technology management, mathematics, medical technology and physics. Degrees in secondary education are available in agriculture, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. The college is responsible for advising programs in pre-architecture, pre-medicine, pre-chiropractic, pre-dental, pre-engineering, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy and pre-veterinary medicine. At the graduate level, the college offers the Master of Natural Science degree in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and science education and Master of Science degrees in environmental science and technology management.
The college is committed to the concepts of student-centered education and experiential learning. All students with a major in the College of Science, Technology and Agriculture will participate in real-world experience as part of their education. This may take the form of undergraduate research, an internship or a capstone experience. Research and scholarly activity play an important role in the educational program. Students are given the opportunity to work with faculty on cutting-edge research topics. Many students present their work at scientific conferences and become co-authors of scientific publications. Research prepares students to think critically and creatively.
Education on a broader scale is aided by service to the University, the professions and the community. Every discipline in the college has at least one student organization devoted to the profession.
Excellence in teaching and research, high quality service, outstanding students and successful alumni are hallmarks of the College of Science, Technology and Agriculture at Southeast Missouri State University.
