About

The 2nd-cycle study programme in Criminal Justice and Security leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Criminal Justice and Security. The programme is a continuation of the Faculty’s 1st-cycle academic study programme and is comparable to study programmes such as the first-cycle study of Security and Police Work and the study of Information Security.

Overview

  • Graduates become experts in the field of security studies; they gain good insight and understanding of the real world, the trends in the field of security operations and management, as well as of the functioning of the judicial system and law enforcement agencies (police, prosecutors, courts, prisons, intelligence agencies, etc.), the role of informal social control mechanisms (families, school, associations, civil-society organisations, and other factors of socialisation), and also of the role of institutionalised informal social control mechanisms (mostly detective agencies and private security companies). 
  • At the postgraduate level, students deepen their knowledge of social, psychological, economic, behavioural, historic, and political aspects of criminality, delinquency, and criminal law; knowledge of research methods, research aetiology, prevention, control of and reactions against criminality and delinquency; skills to evaluate and detect criminal and delinquent behaviours in society; gain an overview of criminal law and criminal prosecution procedures; and develop an understanding of police work, the role of prosecutors, judges, and prison administrations.
