Can you go to grad school and just study nuclear physics or nuclear stuff?
Usually there are requirements to take classes in mathematics and other areas of physics, but one can certainly study nuclear physics.
See the options here - http://www.pa.msu.edu/grad/
The Physics & Astronomy Grad Student Handbook - see Appendix A http://www.pa.msu.edu/grad/GradHandbook081110.pdf
One should look into Nuclear Physics programs at these schools:
Michigan State University
East Lansing, MI
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
University of Washington
Stony Brook University--SUNY
Stony Brook, NY
New Haven, CT
California Institute of Technology
University of California--Berkeley
New York, NY
University of Illinois--Urbana-Champaign
Texas A&M University--College Station
College Station, TX
thanks for the info
Also, nuclear engineering certainly qualifies under 'nuclear stuff', and there exist numerous grad programs in that field. A solid program is at Texas A&M, if you can stand being an Aggie.
