About the Biology program offered at the University of Oklahoma

The student, in consultation with their Major Professor, will determine a research area, termed the Specialty Field, that is of prime interest to the student and in which the student wishes to attain a high degree of expertise. The student and Major Professor will also choose at least one Supporting Field that relates to and supplements the field of specialization, such as biochemistry supporting physiology, or microbiology supporting genetics. 

The final oral examination covers the area of specialization, supporting fields, and the defense of the thesis.
