Thread: Changing subject of interest after gaining a PhD

Hi all!

I'm in a confusing situation and wondered if anyone else has felt the same. Basically, I'm currently enrolled on a funded PhD course in History at my university. However, during my Masters (MPhil) course, I started to get really interested in Criminology – as a result, my thesis was sort of a fusion of the two, or 'historical criminology'. I had already applied for my PhD in History by this point and thought that I wouldn't be accepted onto a PhD in Criminology (plus I didn't want to turn down funding!). I'm starting to really regret this decision, but I know that I'd probably have to do an MSc in Criminology if I want to do a PhD later down the line.

Is it too late to change after doing a PhD? Would it possible to do the History thesis and then start working in Criminology after this, or is that something which universities frown upon?

Many thanks for any help!! :)
