Journal of International Affairs

The Brooklyn College Journal of International Affairs is a unique opportunity to publish original work that will bring the study of international affairs to the college community.  Centered on a particular theme each year, the Journal is comprised of articles, book reviews, editorials, and essays by students of the Masters Program in International affairs.  The edition on violence featured exhibits by CUNY artists, for example, and the edition on the economic crisis brought in studies from economics and other fields.  The 2014-15 edition of the Brooklyn College Journal of International Affairs, focusing on security, is found here: BCJIA 20 May 2015

Completed and distributed on Graduation Day each May, the Journal begins to form over the previous winter break.  Interested students apply to be on the editorial board, and those chosen register for POL 7940, the Independent Studies Course. The editorial board is then responsible for deciding the edition’s theme, soliciting and editing contributions, writing editorials, and supervising the publishing process.

The Journal is now accepting submissions for the 2015-16 edition: Details are here: JIA Flyer 2016.  If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to the graduate chair at  If you are interested in the 2016-17 edition, send an e-mail in September 2016.  In the message, describe any relevant publishing or editing experience or career plans.  In addition to publishing experience, being on the Board counts as a full 3-credit Independent Study course.
