The 3-year Degree Course in Sport Sciences aims to provide students with knowledge and skills suitable for managing, performing and assessing sport individual and group activities of a compensatory, adapted, educational, recreational and playful nature.
The course programme provides a first academic year aimed at the acquisition of anatomical, biochemical and physiological knowledge needed 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 understanding theoretical and practical aspects of sport training, as well as the functional and nutritional assessment of the athlete and the subject trained, or of the leisure-time motor and sport activities , 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 organisations.
It is believed that a graduate must basically be trained with strong competences in the field of assessment, managing and administration of physical activity, and with a solid grounding of biological, medical and psycho-pedagogical skills.
It is well recognised that medical-clinical skills, while representing an important part of the cultural background of the graduate in Sport sciences, should not however misrepresent the his/her professional profile and relevant duties, that are not focused on diagnostic-prescriptive skills but rather pertain to: physical and aptitude planning, methods of administration of the appropriate intensity and duration of the physical-activity load, with the purpose of maintaining and improving human health.
The course is structured in a way that enable the graduate to be self-sufficient in applying any training technique they choose, - among others: the bio-medical, psycho-pedagogical and communication aspects of sports and health.
In order to achieve such results and considering a solid biomedical grounding and additional skills related to different areas , it was considered of fundamental importance to provide a consistent technical fundamentals in order to specifically train a graduate profile in line with as that of a technician, who is able to evaluate, plan, request and manage the most suitable physical exercise as requrired for the subject.
In such a perspective, the course curriculum managed to balance biomedical and medical-clinical disciplines, by structuring a course of studies aimed at training of a professional in the fields of maintenance and improvement of human health.
Graduates will achieve skills related to the understanding, operation and management of sport activities of an educational, adaptive, recreational or sporting nature, aimed at developing, maintaining and recovering motor skills and related psychophysical well-being. Moreover, the graduate will be able to:
For the above-mentioned purposes, the curriculum of this degree course:
In order to manage internships and traineeships aimed at carrying out physical exercises and practical technical activities, the Institution has signed agreements with affiliated associations and companies, such as:
Such agreements have been entered into order to support the Institution in the activities related to highly specialised laboratories, IT and technological systems, personalised study plans, as well as 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 field of sport 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 organisations and social associations, with particular reference to:
The course trains students for the profession of:
Graduates in Sports sciences, who have chosen the bio-health specialisation, will be able to enter the job market with the following professional profiles:
Admission to the course is open to all applicants who, upon enrolment, are in possession of the following qualifications:
It is also required a basic knowledge corresponding to the average level acquired through school education at upper secondary education level. The assessment of the basic knowledge will occur according to the methods indicated in the Academic Regulations of the course of reference.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Upon completion of the traineeship, students are required to submit to the competent office the following documentation:
