    I have heard multiple times that for their B.S. in Physics, students should focus more on quantum physics and have at least one class in quantum mechanics, which seems to be the standard physics curriculum at most schools. Then in graduate school, they can focus more on their desired topics. Some schools offer graduate study and research in GR.
