About the Program

brady trifold with scriptThe Brady Program in Ethics and Civic Life is a scholarly community in which undergraduates join together with graduate students and faculty to discuss values and norms, goodness and badness, rightness and wrongness, virtue and vice, duty and obligation, justice and rights, equality and freedom, and the application of these concepts to local, national, and international communities. It combines a year-long examination of these topics in a small-classroom setting, exposure to a part of the world outside the U.S., and a capstone project that addresses social, economic, or political issues in the Evanston community.

If you are a freshman with a major in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, you are eligible to apply in the spring of your freshman year. Program courses and activities begin in your sophomore year, and conclude by the end of winter quarter in your senior year.
