Type of program:
The course of study offers training for professionals destined to be specialists in the design and implementation of programmes of motor and sports activities aimed at: the prevention of diseases and improvement of the quality of life; post-rehabilitation motor recovery aimed at maintaining physical efficiency; interventions to promote active lifestyles aimed at achieving and maintaining psycho-physical wellbeing for individuals of different ages with gender specificity and in different physical conditions; prevention and functional recovery from postural defects.
These competences will be achieved through the study of motor and sports, biomedical, psycho-pedagogical and sociological disciplines.
The Master's Degree Course in Science and Techniques of Preventive and Adapted Motor Activities is open to students on a first-come, first-served basis.
For admission to the degree course it is necessary to have obtained a degree in one of the following classes or hold another qualification obtained abroad, recognised as suitable: ex D.M. 270: L-22, ex D.M. 509/99: Class 33, ISEF Diploma. In the absence of this degree requirement, access to the Master's degree course is subject to the possession of the following qualifications: degree, three-year university diploma, four-year university diploma, qualification recognised as suitable by special laws, qualification obtained abroad and recognised as suitable and the possession of at least 60 university credits included in the scientific disciplines of the basic and characterising areas of Class L-22, in the qualifying areas of motor and sports activities, physiology, biochemistry and anatomy. Any curricular gaps must be filled before enrolling in the Master's degree. Admission to the course is subject, in addition to meeting the curricular requirements provided, to passing an interview that will assess the basic preparation in the field of motor sciences.
Admission to the Degree Course in 'Preventive and Adapted Physical Activity Sciences and Techniques' is subject to a programmed number of students.
For the academic year 2021/2022, a maximum of 65 students are enrolled.
The Master's degree course in 'Scienze e Tecniche delle Attività Motorie Preventive e Adaptate' is subject to local enrolment, admission is subject to passing an admission test.
Admission to the degree course is subject to the evaluation of the qualifications submitted by the participants and to passing an oral interview, aimed at assessing the candidate's knowledge in the fields of motor and sports activities, psycho-pedagogy, biomedicine and English language. At the end of the tests, a ranking list is drawn up according to the marks obtained in order to admit students to the first year of the course, within the programmed number. Undergraduates who discuss their final thesis within the autumn session may also take part in the admission competition.
Graduates find employment in public and private facilities (gyms, fitness centres, functional motor activity recovery centres, including those dedicated to the disabled, sports clubs) both in Italy and abroad. Facilities in which individual or collective motor activity programmes or courses are held, aimed at children, adults, the elderly and the disabled.
Graduates who have sufficient credits in appropriate groups of sectors, as provided for by the regulations in force, will be able to take part in competitive procedures for teaching physical education in accordance with the regulations in force.
The final examination consists of a public discussion of a written paper in front of a specific committee.
The final paper, which must be original, may be of an experimental, theoretical or design nature or may be a short essay on a mono- or multidisciplinary theme.
The final dissertation, or part of it, may also be carried out at other accredited Italian or foreign public and/or private institutions and companies.
The final dissertation is prepared under the supervision of a member of the Academic Board, known as the supervisor, and any co-rapporteurs, who may also be external to the Academic Board. If the supervisor is a lecturer on contract at the University, he/she shall be assisted by a second supervisor who is a member of the Academic Board of the Degree Course. On the proposal of the supervisor, the final dissertation may be written and discussed in English.
The discussion of the final dissertation is public and takes place in front of a specific examination committee.
The final mark for the degree is expressed by a score between 66/110 and 110/110, with honours where appropriate. The admission grade is determined by the mathematical average of the profit exams.
