semester, I had the chance to chat with John Cluverius, a doctoral student in
political science at UNC and an aspiring political science researcher and
professor. A PhD program in any area requires a high level of discipline and
passion for your subject, but for those “nerds” out there who feel like they’re
married to their major, a career in academia might be an attractive option! For
me, political science has always been interesting on a level beyond what we’ve
learned in class.
