Schools What should i study in graduate school?

Im a junior physics major with intrests in statistical physics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, classical mechanics and all thing theoretical and mathematical. I certainly want to go into something that is very mathematical but im just not sure what I should look into. Also how to i go about finding a professor to do research under in the field i want?

The broad field of theoretical physics sounds to me like the best direction for you to go initially.
You might later feel more attracted to something more specialised, maybe QM or cosmology or whatever fascinated you the most.. .

How about speaking to a professor working in theoretical physics at your university and asking advice. Or maybe you can ask if you can do some guided reading or research to get a feel for what you might enjoy?
