Studying a Criminology degree means looking at the deep lying reasons behind criminal behaviour. What social and psychological factors motivate their actions? What are the effects of crime on people and communities?

It also means considering ways of identifying and preventing crime using techniques from forensics to cyber technology. It means you, tackling one of society's biggest challenges.

Up to the challenge? Discover the fascinating and complex world of Criminology at our virtual taster day and see why we're leading the way in Criminology studies at Portsmouth.
