Hi. My goal is to go from my BS in pure math from Stony Brook into a PH.d in theoretical physics. I am wondering if a terminal masters is the right path to take. I do not have all the undergraduate courses in physics. Or would it be better to go into a lesser known PH.d program? I would prefer a more well known program to help me land a post doc and eventually tenure, and I am wondering if a terminal masters would do the trick? The program I am looking at is Western Illinois University, found here http://www.wiu.edu/physics/ Thank you so much!
