Programme profile

The main objective of this degree programme is to give graduates scientific knowledge in the various fieldsof human wellness, with particular reference to the technical, preventive,managerial and educational areas.

In the technical area, students obtain fundamental knowledge of the theories and teaching methods for thevarious sporting disciplines, as practised essentially for enjoyment and atamateur level. In the preventive area, students learn how to maintain optimalphysical efficiency throughout life, as applied to normal individuals who needto prevent the diseases associated with sedentary living by adopting an activeand healthy lifestyle. In the managerial area, students learn aboutthe legal-administrative principles that govern the world of wellness inthe sporting, recreation, education, prevention and industrial contexts.

These objectives areachieved via lectures, mostly led by teachers, and inter-disciplinary seminarsthat stimulate the abilities of students to connect the content of the variousdisciplines, both longitudinally and transversally; via the individual study ofpost-secondary textbooks and other learning materials supplied by teachers orfound independently; via technical-practical demonstrations in laboratories orin the field, and individual practice intended to obtain practical skills in theareas studied; via internships at preventive-adaptive sporting structures,sports teams and clubs and companies linked with the world of sport sciences;and, lastly, via the preparation of an original, written or multimedia reportthat demonstrates the acquired abilities of the student to gatherindependently information relevant to the field of study, process itindependently in multi-disciplinary terms and communicate it clearly insummarised form.


More information

Dall'a.a. 2017/18 si è deciso di dare una diversa connotazione ai corsi di studio triennali di scienze motorie sulle due sedi di Bologna e Rimini. A Bologna l'accento sarà sull'aspetto tecnico-sportivo, mentre a Rimini il focus sarà sull'aspetto preventivo-adattato orientato al benessere, salute e stili di vita attivi. Questa riorganizzazione si inserisce nella caratterizzazione didattica del Campus di Rimini.
