New College of the Humanities (NCH) will offer the ‘highest-quality’ education to ‘gifted’ undergraduates, its creators say... The college will prepare undergraduates for degrees in law, economics, history, philosophy and English literature. Students will also take three ‘intellectual skills’ modules in science literacy, logic and critical thinking and applied ethics.

So economics is to be studied as one of the humanities; but where on Earth is one of the most venerable of academic disciplines, divinity? I can scarely imagine how a professoriate containing such figures as Richard Dawkins, A.C. Grayling, Simon Blackburn and Steven Pinker could have overlooked the contributions of theologians to humane scholarship.
