Main Question or Discussion Point
Can you do two PhDs in two different subjects? I am hoping that i can do a PhD in both theoretical/mathematical physics AND pure mathematics, is that possible?
Very, *very* rarely. Getting one Ph.D. is crazy, getting two is a sign of serious mental illness.Are there any people with two PhDs in completely unrelated fields?
for example a middle-aged mathematician decides he wants to change fields completely and goes back and gets a PhD in History. Does this ever happen?
