what happens to fields of study if there's too much material to remember?
let's say they start including dark matter, higher dimensions and quantum entanglement into courses that are mandatory for a physics degree and a physics PhD. What about all the stuff that students are learning these days? they'll have to cram the new knowledge in as well in addition to the previous stuff

    For law, you just look it up in special case/search data bases and look at old outlines. The only time you know an area in and out is when you deal with it ever single day, and everyone knows this. I imagine scientists and professors do the same thing.

      Does this even exist? Anywhere else in the world the knowledge of law is not standarized and you can't find shit, you must know everything yourself or specialize in a topic.

    Specialization, it already exists
    When you're an undergraduate you're really only learning the basic generalized aspects of the field, but when you to gradschool you will focus on a specific sub-field rather than covering everything

    Its not a Unified Theory of Everything, therefore it is by definition false-Physics, just "approaching" True Physics.

    "In the neighborhood." or something.

    At a certain point, curriculum for science classes at primary levels needs to start introducing students to at least basic concepts. As it is right now, most students don't take any kind of physics course until high school, and some may not even take a basic conceptual physics course until college (and that's only if they choose to take that as a science credit). Now obviously most students interested in pursuing physics as a major are going to be driven to taking more math and science classes earlier in high school, but the fact that we're not even introducing basic concepts of mechanics, the laws of motion, conservation, experimental methodology, etc. until most students are 17-18 is fricking ridiculous.

    The other change that needs to be made is a reduction in elective and core curriculum coursework. I get that schools want students to be well-rounded, but when you're at the point where less than half of a major's coursework is dedicated to topics outside their major, it's gone too far. Physics programs are already at the point where they've had to start whittling down programs from four semesters of intro physics to three, going from two semesters each of E&M and QM to one of each, etc.

    If you want core courses and electives - make them do 3 hours each of: Qualitative reasoning, quantitative reasoning, ancient history, modern history, rhetoric, literature, natural science, and social science, art, and plus 6 electives. That's 45 hours of courses that give them a good grounding in other topics, but also leaves 75 hours to sink into their major.

    I think ai powered research assistants are going to be big in the coming decades specifically because their access to information can help make cross disciplinary connections that might otherwise be missed.

    It just subdivides. That's how chemistry separated from physics. Each has too much information to be taught in detail in an ordinary undergraduate curriculum.
