Instructions for the declaration of Thematic Units

  1. Students can choose from one (1) to three (3) units in each semester. The selection of the units is made in sequential order and therefore follows the numbering of the subjects in the programme. Consequently, if in the first semester students choose one unit, they must choose unit PED50 “Crime Social Control and Criminal Suppression”; if they choose two units, they must choose unit PED50 “Crime Social Control and Criminal Suppression” and unit PED51 “The Criminology of Economic Crime and Corruption” offered in the same semester. If they wish to choose all three topics, they will also choose unit PED52. In the process of declaring a unit, the units of the previous semesters should be exhausted first and then, the unit of the following semesters should be declared. In case students have not completed some units from a semester, then they select the remaining units from the same semester and can also select the necessary number of units from the next semester to complete the total of 3 units.
  2. Attendance in the four semesters of the programme is also determined by the following prerequisites:

a) The attendance of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory (PED63) requires that students have successfully completed the units of the first and second semester and have the right to participate in the examinations of at least two units of the third semester. In other words, it is required that either all the units of the programme have been completed, or that up to two (2) units of the third (3rd) semester only remain for examinations.

b) Students may undertake the Postgraduate Thesis (PED PT) after successful completion of all the units of the programme.
