Core competencies

The Faculty of Security was founded in 1977 within the Center for training and education in the area of
security and social self-protection, as a genuine higher education institution in former Yugoslavia for
educating law-enforcement professionals.
At the same time, the Faculty became member of the University St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje.
It was abolished in 1995 with a special law, and the decision for the abolition entered into force on
In 2003 a new law was passed for establishing the Police Academy. It incorporated the Faculty of security
as its integral part, whose activities were based on new and modern study programs.
In the academic year 2004-2005, the first generation of students enrolled at the Academy, and this is also
the year when ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) was introduced. In addition, the Faculty of
Security became member of the University St. Kliment Ohridski in Bitola. In the academic year 2006-2007
postgraduate studies were also introduced, and were later transformed into master studies.
In September 2008, the Police Academy was transformed into two separate institutions. One of them was
the Faculty of Security, which was the legal successor of the Police Academy. The same year, beside the
existing study program Criminalistics a new study program Security and financial control was launched, in
the form of joint studies of the Faculty of Security and the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism in Ohrid.
The Faculty’s first and second cycle studies are constantly being enriched with new syllabi related to
contemporary security topics. We continue to work on improving our opportunities. We sincerely hope that
our former, current and future students will continue to write our common history.
