Founded in 2011, New College of the Humanities (NCH) is based in Bloomsbury, the academic heart of London. It offers an award-winning, liberal arts-inspired undergraduate curriculum, taught through one-to-one tutorials and small classes, combined with exceptional professional skills development.
At New College of the Humanities, undergraduate students choose a combined honours degree comprising a ‘major’ subject and a complementary ‘minor’. Majors are available in Art History*, Economics, English, Geography*, History, Law, Philosophy and Politics & International Relations (*Geography expected 2018, subject to validation). A single honours Law LLB is also available.
All the above subjects are available as minors. In addition, NCH offers an exciting minor in Creative Writing, as well as the popular 'trio combinations' of PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) and PPH (Philosophy, Politics and History).
All undergraduate students combine their degree studies with the broad liberal arts-inspired NCH Diploma. This comprises courses in Critical Reasoning, Science Literacy and Applied Ethics, as well as LAUNCH, a three-year professional development programme designed to equip you with the transferable skills needed by graduate employers.
With only 150 students across all three years, NCH offers an exceptional learning experience. Teaching is delivered through regular one-to-one tutorials led by qualified, inspiring and experienced academics who have a passion for teaching, leading to student satisfaction levels surpassing those of other institutions.
New College of the Humanities has recently launched its first postgraduate courses: MA Communicating Economic Policy; MSc Global Politics; MA Historical Research & Public History; and MA Philosophy.
All students benefit from lectures delivered by NCH’s world-class professoriate, which includes Simon Blackburn, Richard Dawkins, Daniel C Dennett, AC Grayling, Lawrence Krauss, Steven Pinker, Sir Christopher Ricks, and Adrian Zuckerman. Between them, they deliver approximately 100 lectures in each academic year, giving students at NCH access to some of the world’s greatest thinkers.
