Bria Brimmer, South Carolina State’s setter in volleyball, had what could be an awakening over the summer that has altered how she looks at her future.
Brimmer, a senior accounting major from Austin, Texas, participated in the PhD Pipeline Opportunity Program (PhD POP) at Duke University. Her plans were to pursue an MBA after she graduates next spring. But the PhD POP internship piqued her interest in pursuing a doctorate degree, and she is seriously considering entering a doctoral program immediately after she completes her undergraduate course work.
