CRIM ONE is an interdisciplinary first-year option at SFU Surrey for students intending to specialize in Criminology. Criminology, the study of crime and how society responds to crime, is a diverse and fascinating field. A degree in Criminology will prepare you for a career in the criminal justice system (e.g., policing, probation or parole). You can also use your Criminology degree as a foundation for law school. SFU Surrey is also home to the unique minor, diploma, and certificate in Police Studies which will provide the educational foundation for key areas of practice such as forensics, cybercrime investigation, and crime and criminal intelligence analysis.
Students in CRIM ONE will benefit in a number of ways, including:
- priority registration in core CRIM ONE and SFU Surrey courses
- smaller class sizes
- close contact with professors
- program planning with student advisor and guidance in course selection
Students enter CRIM ONE and take two core courses in fall, and an additional two in spring:
CRIM 101-3 Intro to Criminology
