Editor's Note: Spring '17 is here

Dear Grads,


I hope your first few weeks back for Spring semester started off smoothly!

In this February issue of Grad Journal, we are resuming back to covering Thesis Profiles, one of the most beloved and well-received series in the publication. Check out what your MA peers are delving deep in their research and writing — over sleepless nights and caffeine intakes — this last semester of their graduate school career. We have many more interviews with the graduating MA students coming up in the near future to showcase their passion with the rest of SAIC’s graduate school community. If you are a second-year MA student yourself and would like to sit down with the Journal to talk about your work, please reach out at gradjournal@saic.edu.

Check out our coverage on MakeWork Challenge, its weekly workshops on entrepreneurship and the upcoming deadline for application. Don’t miss this opportunity open for all grad students!

The Grad Journal is also looking for a new editor for the upcoming academic year, Fall ’17 – Spring ’18. If you are interested in the position, please contact me, ykim105@saic.edu and I’d be happy to share with you my experience as the editor this year.


Spring is here, almost. Classes are rolling. Graduation is coming up. We got this.



Best of wishes,

Joanne Yj Kim (MA 2017)
