I want to display a flat, straight line of text first then afterwards have the text evolve into a rotating circle.
I have no clue how to approach this.
Does anybody have any ideas?

There are many ways to achieve this depending on precisely what you need and which version of After Effects you have. CS6 with the Ray Traced renderer allows adjustment of the layer curvature, you'd need to precompose the text first then adjust the curvature and the number of segments to taste.

Or you could use CC Cylinder to wrap the type around a pseudo 3D Cylinder that responds to camera moves.

Or you could place the type on a mask path and animate the path from a straight line to a circle as I have done here:

See this tutorial on how to animate text on path:

I have created an example of what you want to achieve:
