I don't really have to look into this just yet but it bothers me. I quite like cosmology and stuff like such. Universal topology and relativity and sum of histories and stuff. Fun! I really would like to study any theoretical physics though, it just strikes my fancy particularly. I figure I'd have to be looking into Astronomy. However, when looking into the three-year entrance-level programmes at uni (Kandidatprogram in Sweden) I'm sort of worried. Astronomy in my head feels more like things along the lines of studying aspects of celestial bodies and categorical observation or somesuch. That's all fun but not really what I want.. I could probably phrase it better. I'm also all about phi-of-sci, metaphysical philosophy (+epistemology) and purer mathematics. Should I be going straight for Astronomy, or should I be gunning for physics and then Theoretical Physics master? Where does "Astrophysics" fit into all that? Have also been looking into some other programmes like pure mathematics, Applied physics, and doubley stuff such as "Physics and philosophy", "Mathematics and philosophy". How far off from theoretical physics would these kandidatprogram put me?
