## Main Question or Discussion Point

I did my undergrad in math and physics (in the US) and would like to go on to graduate school. However, I am having a little trouble deciding on a program and was wondering if anyone could recommend any schools.

My motivation for going to grad school is really just that I want to thoroughly learn and understand the physics that is currently out there. At the moment, I am not really interested in research or anything, and don't have a desire to specialize in any particular area at the moment. Interest in that may come later, but at the moment all I really have a drive to do is understand well the theory that currently exists.

Ideally, I would like to do a program that emphasizes studying theory. By this I mean a program that covers Classical Physics, General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, etc. from a heavily mathematical perspective and also includes study in the areas of mathematics related to those areas of physics--for instance, differential geometry. As an example, the courses for http://www.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de/TMP/courses/index.html" [Broken] program in Germany are attractive to me. I would be willing to go outside the US for school, but I would also like to look into schools in the US that have what I am looking for.

Thanks for your help.
