Academic Preparation for gravitational wave careers?

  • #1
If someone wanted to pursue a career in gravitional wave physics, and work at places like LIGO, studying astrophysical objects such as black holes and neutron stars, etc.
What are some key courses/skills that person should take/learn as an undergraduate, and graduate student?

Um, I'd suggest astrophysics, with generous sides of maths, mathematica and electronics...
