ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project aims to create interdisciplinary criminology studies at Vilnius University. They will consist of three study programs such as: Master program of Sociology criminology, Master program of Psychology criminology and “Criminology”- a branch of Law study program. All study programs will have common unit of criminology that will ensure proper specialization of psychology, sociology and law in the framework of former study programs.
Criminological practice will also be enclosed into these studies. The Law institute (www.teise.org) will organize this practice.
Currently only narrow specialized criminology studies exist in Lithuania. Also separate courses of criminology have been taught up till now. Such kind of interdisciplinary criminology studies has not existed yet.
The idea of interdisciplinary criminology studies is unique not only in the context of Lithuania, but in the Central and Eastern Europe too. This kind of studies is also rare in the academic context of West Europe and North America.
