Journal of Political Science

The Department of Political Science at Brooklyn College is happy to announce the return of the Brooklyn College Journal of Political Science.

Each year, graduate students in political science edit and publish the Brooklyn College Political Science Journal. Centered on a particular theme, the journal is composed of articles by graduate and undergraduate students, book reviews, editorials and other essays. The most recent edition, for example, included an art review featuring exhibits in New York City by CUNY-affiliated artists.

Completed and distributed on Graduation Day each May, the journal begins to form in the previous fall semester. Interested students apply to be on the editorial board, and those chosen register for POL 794: Independent Studies Course. The editorial board is then responsible for deciding the edition's theme, soliciting and editing contributions, writing pieces such as editorials, and supervising the publishing process.

Posted here is the 2007–08 edition of the journal. If you are interested in working on future editions, please complete the application that is sent out to all students each fall and is posted on this site.
