    Please recommend me some good books which will help me to study these topics in physics masters course .

    Classical field thoery: L & H formulations, eqns of motion,symmetries & invariance, noether's theorem

    Field quantization:fock space decomposition, canonical quantization of real scalar field,complex scalar field, interpretation of quantized field

    Radiation field : maxwell field, gauge invariance,canonical quantization using radiation gauge, ambiguities in quantization,their removal & lorentz gauge quantization

    Dirac spinor field & its quantization , spontaneous symmetry breaking,goldstone model, higgs model

    Applications : interaction of radiation with matter, plankcs law, Kramer heisenberg formula , coherent & raman scattrng, theory of line width, elementary theory of photoelectric effect, non relativistic theory of lamb shift.

    I would recommend

    Greiner & Reinhardt, Field Quantization. It has a gentler learning curve than many other QFT books and includes many solved exercises.
