Southeast Missouri State University was founded in 1873. Southeast offers more than 200 areas of study from accounting to zoology.

The school prepares students to be leaders in society through a curriculum centered on academic and personal development.
International English Program provides international students with the language, academic, and cultural skills necessary to succeed in American institutions of higher learning. Throughout its thirty-year history, the IEP has sought to respond to and support the learning needs of international students from around the globe.
IEP courses are taught in five eight-week sessions during the year: two in the fall, two in the spring and one during summer months. Additionally, a three-week special topics session is offered in May.
Five courses: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar/special topics, meet daily for a total of 25 hours of language instruction each week. Classes at various levels of instruction, beginning through advanced, meet simultaneously. All full-time students take the ESL laboratory course each term, in which they individualize their out-of-class studies in consultation with, and supervised by, an IEP faculty member. Students with advanced language skills may be permitted to “bridge” to selected university level courses before completing all IEP language studies. Normally, a beginning level student completes the IEP and attains sufficient language proficiency to enter the university within 12 to 18 months of arrival. Intensive English students who are conditionally admitted to university courses of study, may enter the university upon successful completion of the Advanced level courses in the IEP and as recommended by the faculty.
