Sociology seeks to answer vital questions about society, mediated communication and criminality. On our courses, you’ll uncover some of the deepest truths about our shared human condition.  

Study at Surrey and you’ll investigate social trends, life in digital societies, contemporary problems relating to crime and social control. You’ll also examine the subtleties of everyday behaviour, lifestyles and identities. 

We are ranked 2nd for Sociology courses in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021 and in the top 10 by the Guardian University Guide 2021.
