Each semester, our senior science and math students enroll in their Capstone course. This course allows the seniors to engage in an internship or research experience related to their career goals. For examples, students interested in attending pharmacy school work in a pharmacy or conduct pharmaceutical research and students interested in pursuing a career in the chemical industry are placed in a chemical company. These experiences give our students real world opportunities that are invaluable in their future career plans.  

At the culmination of the Capstone course, each student prepares a poster using the format of a professional scientific meeting. At the end of each semester, the School of the Sciences hosts a Poster Session. The senior students discuss their Capstone experiences with the Stevenson Community and invited guests. Everyone was impressed with our students' knowledge and poise in discussing their internships and research projects!

Congratulations to Chemistry senior and BS/MS student in Forensic Sciences, Andrew McGregor, on being chosen as an intern in the Summer Intern Program for Information Assurance (SIP/IA) with the National Security Agency (NSA)!  Andrew will spend his summer involved in information assurance projects, including protecting and defending the nation's information systems networks and outmaneuvering cyber adversaries.  In order to be chosen for this very selective and competitive internship, Andrew submitted an extensive application and went through a long security clearance process.  Andrew is really excited about this amazing opportunity!  

Biochemistry Junior, Ginell McLean, was selected to participate in the 2015 Minority Undergraduate Student Internship Program (MUSIP) at the Edgewood Chemical Biogical Center.  This summer, Ginell will work with a mentor to conduct science and engineering research.  She will present the results of her research during the last week of the program.  Ginell will also present her research results to the SU community since she is using this research experience as part of her Capstone Research course.  

At the April ACS Meeting, Lynnda Watson, Forensics Supervisor at the Baltimore County Police Department, described a career as a Forensic Scientist.  She showed the various instruments used in a crime lab as well as the data obtained from these instruments.  She encouraged those interested in a career in Forensic Science to obtain a strong undergraduate background in science and then to continue with graduate work in Forensic Science.  In the course of her talk, she mentioned Stevenson's Forensic Science Master's Program.

Austin Ikein has always expressed an interest in attending pharmacy school after graduation from SU.  He is very excited to be admitted to Howard University School of Pharmacy and will start there in August.  Austin credits his success in getting admitted to the Howard to his Capstone internship.  Austin worked at Giant Pharmacy and gained valuable experience.  He was then able to describe his experiences in the pharmacy during his pharmacy school interviews.  Congratulations Austin!  We're really excited for you.
