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 our criminology courses.
Study at Surrey and you’ll investigate the cause and effect of criminal actions, the form and outcome of social disorders, the policing and regulation of public disorder, the criminal justice system, and the relationship between behaviours and punishments.
We’re ranked in the top ten for criminology by the Guardian University Guide 2021.
