The online Three-year Degree Course in Sport Sciences aims to provide students with knowledge and skills suitable for managing and evaluating individual and group activities of a compensatory, adapted, educational, recreational and playful nature.
This course includes a first academic year aimed at the acquisition of anatomical, biochemical and physiological knowledge in order to understand how basically the human body in motion works.
The second academic year is, instead, focused on the teaching of motor and sports activities, as well as the knowledge of sport sciences and its connections with health.
The activities of the third academic year are aimed at the knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects of training and the functional and nutritional assessment of the athlete and the subject trained, or of the motor and sport activities in free time, the environmental quality and safety in sports facilities, of orthopedics and traumatology of sport and movement, and all the legal and economic foundations of the structure and sports organizations.
It is believed that a graduate must basically be trained with strong competences in the field of assessment, managing and administration of physical activity resides concerning biological, medical and psycho-pedagogical skills.
It is also believed that medical-clinical skills, while representing an important part of the cultural baggage of the graduate in physical education, should not however misrepresent the nature of the professional figure that does not have diagnostic-prescriptive skills but rather a physical and aptitude and planning and administration of the appropriate quantity, intensity and duration of the physical-motor activity load for the purpose of maintaining and improving human health.
The course was structured to make the graduate independent as far as concerns the application of training techniques that take into account different features of the subject: from biomedical to psycho-pedagogical and communication ones.
In order to achieve these results, being provided with solid biomedical skills and other skills related to different areas (whose weight is obviously linked to the interfaculty setting of the degree course), it is believed of fundamental importance to hold a solid base of technical training subjects in order to strongly characterize the graduate as well as a technician who is able to evaluate, plan, prescribe and manage the most suitable physical exercise for the subject.
This perspective has led to the current set-up that is thus balanced between the M-EDF and biomedical and medical-clinical sectors, through a study course aimed at the training of an expert professional in the fields of maintenance and improving of human health.
Graduates will achieve skills related to the understanding and management of educational activities of adaptive, recreational or sports nature, addressing them in the development, maintenance and recovery of motor skills and the psychophysical well-being related to them, also with the function of prevention:
For the purposes stated, the curriculum of this degree course:
The University has signed agreements with associations and companies for physical exercises and practical technical activities. Relations with CONI are in progress for developing traineeships and internships. In addition, the University has signed an agreement with affiliated institutions for research and activities in the medical-scientific areas with a leading medical-scientific-hospital and research group such as NEUROMED. The agreements have been signed in order to support the university in the activities related to highly specialized laboratories, IT and technological systems, personalized study places, traineeships and internships.
The objective is to train professionals with an adequate mastery of general and specific methods and contents, able to understand and manage technological innovation, by adapting to the scientific and methodological evolution related to the wide field of motor activities, potentially performed by subjects belonging to different age groups and with particular physio pathological conditions.
The main career opportunities provided by the degree courses consist of professional activities in the motor and sports field, both in public and private structures, in sports organizations and social associations, with particular reference to:
The course trains you for the profession of:
Graduates in Sports sciences who have chosen the bio sanitary address will be able to enter the job market with the following professional profiles:
To be admitted to the Degree Course you must hold a high school diploma or other qualification awarded abroad, officially recognized. It is also required 12 years of schooling with a basic knowledge acquired through secondary education level.
The verification of the basic knowledge will be verified according to the methods stated in the Academic Regulations of the course.

Pegaso International’s traineeships are integral part of the student academic curriculum, and are provided as practical activities of the academic record relevant to the completion of the study course. Traineeships may be mandatory or recognized as processes through which students may gain exemptions of credits. The number of credits gained for curricular traineeships is stated in the Standard Study Plans. Traineeship activities are officially recognised through the acknowledgement of credits (1 ECTS = 8 hours). Generally, the working hours are mutually agreed upon between the trainee and the host company, considering the current needs of both parties and the company working hours. Students may undertake the traineeship at any time of the year.
Students will be considered eligible for admission for a traineeship, upon the positive assessment of a minimum number of ECTS, with reference to:
Students are required to reach specific agreements with the host company and communicate the following data in writing to Pegaso International to the mail: email@example.com
Upon completion of the traineeship, students are required to submit to the competent office the following documentation:
