Why choose this course
What is criminal behaviour? What motivates offenders? How does crime impact victims, and which punishments should be imposed on criminals? These are some of the questions you’ll explore on this course.

At Surrey, we’re proud to be ranked 1st for criminology by the Guardian University Guide 2019 and our sociology course is top 10 in the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.)

Our research-led BSc Criminology will help you develop a critical perspective on contemporary problems relating to crime, deviance and social control, teaching you the methods necessary to conduct and evaluate research in these areas.

What you will study
This course focuses on the study of crime, deviance and the criminal justice system. It will develop your understanding of the concepts, theories and principles of criminology and their application across a range of case studies and examples.

You’ll study the cause and effect of criminal actions, the form and outcome of social disorders, the policing and regulation of public order, the procedures and techniques of the criminal justice system and the relationship between behaviours and punishments.

Through combining criminological theory with training in professional social research, you’ll graduate with a broad range of communicative, analytical and organisational skills – and the confidence to apply them in your future career.
