Which branches of theoretical physics are the most likely to find a TOE?

I'm just trying to learn a little about this stuff, but my physics knowledge isn't too deep as I am only a first-year undergrad.

A nudge in the right direction would be appreciated!

Quantum theory, particle physics, would be the places to look. These are very much intertwined.

There may not be a TOE because of our poor knowledge. Although many claim so, it is just fooling.

I guess the quest for "quantum gravity" is often associated with approaching a ToE, such that principles of Quantum Field Theory and General Relativity are combined in an appropriate manner. I however agree that this will most likely not yield a ToE; yet it might lead to a unified theory of all known interactions.
