The dynamic nature of this program, with 20 hours of open electives, also encourages students to explore possible concentrations such as health science, ecology, wildlife science, or forensic biology along with a minor in unmanned aerial systems, psychology, accounting, cyber intelligence and security, finance or any other minor offered by the university that has 18 credit hours that do not overlap with the degree requirements of their major.

Students can choose either a biology or chemistry capstone project, which they can tailor to their focal point. If they choose, they can use this project to do research with faculty as well as develop their own research. Some options for research with faculty include: drug design and discovery, computational autodocking studies, DNA research, wildlife and airport risk research.
