Faculty of Security & Forensic Investigations

The private security sector predates modern policing and, prior to the formation of what we now see as public sector law enforcement, private security personnel carried out critical duties for a government. These functions included protecting the president, hunting down fugitives and spies, and conducting investigations ranging from counterfeit to industrial espionage. Today, the private security sector is present in almost every business and industry, including retail, healthcare, corporate, government contracting, cultural property, cyber, and more.

The basic sense, content and aim of this faculty is based on the knowledge of security theories, security studies and approaches offered to students. Its emphasis lies on the analysis of the modern-day world of security, on the theoretical and methodological starting points of the research and the study of a new security theory, on security policy. Upon completion of the series of the courses under this faculty Security Studies will be formed as an ability to exercise the theoretical knowledge fully in the worldwide academic environment. It can be exercised also within the foreign security institutions if necessary to apply the theoretical, leading and manager activities.
