Overview

The Physical Education program of the Southeast Missouri State University infuses technology into student experiences and learning. The program's Motor Development Laboratory is equipped with a stability platform, a photoelectric rotary pursuit, and other tools for measuring perceptual-motor abilities. Teacher candidates in the program also have hands-on experiences with various teaching analysis software. Southeast’s education program differs from that of many other universities by providing you with extensive field experience, beginning with first-hand classroom training and observation during your freshman year and continuing through student teaching during your senior year.

As a student in Southeast’s physical education program, you will receive a full semester of on-the-job student teaching experience, as opposed to the traditional eight or nine weeks of training, thus better preparing you for a career in physical education.

Southeast’s education program’s unique block format, in addition to providing increased professional experience, allows you to meet other students with your major early on, thus enabling you to form common bonds and establish professional relationships with others in your field.

B.S. in Education graduates work in education, health, and recreation fields. Examples of job titles include elementary and high school physical education teacher, activities director, health educator, athletic director and coach.
