New College of the Humanities

Das New College of the Humanities ist eine 2010 von A. C. Grayling gegründete Privatuniversität in London.

Beschreibung

Richard Dawkins und einige andere der bekanntesten Professoren Englands gründeten 2010 eine Privatuniversität. Diese soll mit den britischen Elite-Hochschulen Cambridge und Oxford in Konkurrenz treten.

Für Studiengebühren in Höhe von 18.000 Pfund jährlich, werden den Studenten ähnlich dem Konzept der US-amerikanischen Liberal Arts Colleges mit geisteswissenschaftlicher Rundumbildung Einzeltutorien geboten.

Die Leitung des College wird Grayling vorerst selbst übernehmen. Professoren sind neben Dawkins und Grayling Simon Blackburn, Partha Dasgupta, Ronald Dworkin, Lawrence Krauss, Steve Jones, Christopher Ricks und Adrian Zuckerman. Hinzu kommen als Gastprofessoren Niall Ferguson, David Cannadine, Linda Colley, Steven Pinker und Peter Singer.
