    Where can you actually get an undergrad degree that is specialized in theoretical physics? What does that even mean?

    Loyola offers a B.S. in Theorectical Physics and Applied Math: http://www.luc.edu/math/bsphysapp.shtml

    My understanding of the UK system is that BSc in Theoretical Physics by starting with physics for the first 2 years, then specializing in Theoretical Physics in your 3rd and 4th years.

    A theoretical physics BSc degree (in the UK) is, for the most part, a degree in Physics with the lab-based modules replaced with either applied maths, or extra theoretical physics modules. Like the BSc in Physics, it will take 3 years.

    Indeed. Some students in my department followed our theoretical physics programme, is basically has extra programming and applied math type courses, and less practical lab time. Though, remember 3 years applies to England - in Scotland the standard Bsc is 4 years/Msci 5 years due to a different structure at high-school level.
