The percentage of criminogenic behaviors on global level is growing significantly. Most law schools that have study programs in criminal law monitor these trends.

That is why the Faculty of Law has introduced a specialized study program to study this fundamental and complex discipline that covers aspects of substantive criminal law, procedural law and penology.

The study program includes courses in criminology and penology which will help the student gain an in-depth knowledge of the ways of suppressing and preventing crimes.

The students who choose this study program will acquire extended theoretical knowledge about criminal law, and also skills for its practical application.

The students could use the gained knowledge and skills in front of judicial authorities, the public prosecutor’s office and other institutions that have investigative power.
