String theory: simple question.

  1. Mar 4, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone,
    I've always wondered what's that fuss for unifying general relativity and quantum mechanics all about. I stumbled upon things like string theory(or M theory) and even loop quantum gravity( which I think is as good as string theory despite rumors).

    My question is : which program at graduate level should you choose to study the whole of string theory and loop quantum gravity? I bet it is theoretical particle physics, am I right? (Because these 2 theories go beyond the standard model..?)
