Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences

Educational Programme: Psychology (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 8

The present research is aimed at investigating the individual-personal factors of readiness for minor offences in student youth. More precisely, the major focus is made on factors, relating to emergence of criminal activity. The research is concerned with individual psychological characteristics of student youth, which make possible minor offences more likely. The methods utilized, such as personality questionings and scenario questioning are powerful estimation and fixation tools to state correlations between the chosen way of behavior, locus of control and present personal characteristics. The results anticipated could lead to obvious and visible demonstrations of connection between marked factors. Additionally, the results could be helpful for practical purposes such as educational sphere, law and order structures. The study of psychological factors influencing the minor offence shed more light on aspects of criminal behavior, offering opportunities for further investigations which may help other researchers to come closer to understanding of both student youth and the sphere of criminalistics in general.
