Stanford The Theoretical Minimum: Quantum Mechanics

This course is comprised of a six-quarter sequence of classes that will explore the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this course sequence will include classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, the general and special theories of relativity, electromagnetism, cosmology, and black holes. While these courses will build upon one another, each course also stands on its own, and both individually and collectively they will let students attain the "theoretical minimum" for thinking intelligently about modern physics. Created by Stanford.
