Switching between subfields of physics

  • #1
Hi,

I am a sophomore currently doing research in experimental condensed matter physics, and I'm happy with that. However, I have a lingering fascination with general relativity. If I get to graduate school and decide I'd rather work in GR, would I be able to do that?

Yes, completely (assuming the school you go to has GR research, etc, etc).

Nothing you do as an undergrad majoring in physics is going to lock you into a career. You can always switch fields, even after grad school (although the longer you wait, the harder it becomes).
