Order of courses for self-learning?

  1. Mar 3, 2015 #1
    Hi there!

    My name is Andrew, and I am currently a high school junior. I aspire pursue a doctorate degree in Theoretical Physics, specializing in Quantum Physics for thesis, and hopefully becoming a researcher in the field.

    My small dilemma is that schools become awfully tiresome, and the curriculum my school has set up doesn't teach me as much as I want to truly know, so I've taken up self-learning on the side. I really want to start learning more as soon as possible, because I've truly grown a very deep devotions for the subject.

    Would you happen to know the order in which classes are taught in college — or better yet, the order in which a dedicated individual should learn the subjects (Mechanics, then Electrodynamics, Optics, etc.)?

    Thank you!

    Tip: college web sites often list recommended course sequences for physics (and other) majors. Detailed course listings usually show the pre-requisites for each course.
