Colloquium: The Political Science Journal of Boston College

Serving as a forum meant to promote academic dialogue and exchange both within and outside of the University's political science community, Colloquium expands upon the current offerings of the major. Coupled with the discipline's intensive writing and critical thinking nature, this undergraduate journal furthers the means through which students are able to address, ponder and critique the political issues of past and present. Encouraged by Colloquium to rigorously and objectively consider questions of significant importance, undergraduates bring scholarly discussion normally reserved for the confines of the political science classroom into the larger Boston College student body. For more information please contact the Editorial Board at colloquiumbc@gmail.com.

Colloquium is published biannually in print, and also online as an open access journal
