Political Science Professor
A former professor in the California State University system who earned two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. from Yale, John Phillips could land a job at plenty of universities. He chose MiraCosta College.
“It’s a dream job for people who want to teach at the college level,” he said. “This is one of the best community colleges in the nation, it’s a model for the state, and it’s one of the last remaining colleges that are still committed to teaching.”
