Junior Year Program Requirements

Junior Year Assignment

The Brady goal for your time abroad or in Engage Chicago is to reflect with a mentor– a philosopher, ethicist, humanities scholar – on the place you are visiting.  The local issue your class decided to explore should be central to your conversations.  Is this an issue in your foreign country or in the city of Chicago?  If so, how are they managing it?  Might you incorporate their methods and solutions to your work on the Senior Project in Evanston? 

Discussion Board

Stay in touch with your cohort.  It is expected that you check in at least once each month while away.  By email, share your experiences and respond to queries made by Grad Fellows and others in your cohort. 

Weekly Teas

When on campus, stay connected to Brady and join us for Tea! 


When you return from your travels, prepare a five to ten minute talk about what you learned, especially about the issue your class has chosen to address in your Senior year.

Juniors who traveled between July and December will present in the winter of their Junior year. Juniors who traveled between January and June will present in the fall of their Senior year.

Juniors Vote on Senior Project

Late Spring Quarter, Juniors who are on campus meet to vote on the project you will undertake in your Senior year.  Those still abroad will be represented in the vote. Grad Fellows will join you in narrowing the scope of the issue you have been considering during this year, to a tangible project idea with identifiable goals you wish to achieve.
