Besides being home to the legendary Hollywood, Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States and the largest in the state of California. It has hosted the Olympics games twice before and is divided into 80 districts and neighborhoods. The city is home to three public universities and a host of other institutions.

A student of theoretical physics may explore the field through class work, laboratories, lectures and research. The skills they attain can set them up for careers in many industries. Physicists may work with engineers, become educators or research robotics. These and other possibilities are open to the theoretical physics student.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Requirements for the PhD program often involve the student having already obtained a Master’s degree. Additionally, a thesis or dissertation primarily consisting of original academic research must be submitted. In some countries, this work may even need to be defended in front of a panel.
