If you want to get your doctorate and you are unsure how to go about it, Matthew Might, a professor at the University of Utah, has created an illustrative Ph.D guide. This combination of circular pie diagrams aims to instruct students and other interested parties on the path to take to obtain their goals with higher learning.

Going for a Ph.D is not only difficult, but very intimidating, especially if you took a break from the classroom. Might's illustration doesn't drone on in endless paragraphs about what one should do. Instead, it provokes action by being more visual. One can imagine themselves as the circle growing and evolving as they move through the academic sphere.

The illustrative Ph.D guide also provides words of encouragement, telling you to keep pushing for your goal because it is definitely within your reach if you work hard.
