M branes in Cosmology, PhD inquiry

  1. Nov 1, 2009 #1
    I'm considering a PhD in cosmology, but the university i'm interested in focuses particularly on models based on branes. I'm finding it difficult to get information on the specifics of this topic, but for the moment i'd just like to know whether it is entirely based in string theory. In particular i'm concerned about exactly what options i'll have on finishing the phd, will i already be completely focused on strings etc, or will i be in a position to carry on into qft etc if I find i don't enjoy it in the end? I was initially hoping to look at particle and field theories in cosmology, will this type of phd likely have some focus in these issues?

    any information is appreciated.
