The programme

Learning outcomes

Il master intende completare la preparazione del laureato magistrale in scienze motorie relativamente alla ricerca scientifica, fornendo un quadro completo che va dalla ricerca bibliografica, alla progettazione di un disegno sperimentale, alla stesura della documentazione per il
comitato etico, alla conduzione degli esperimenti, la raccolta e l’analisi dei dati, anche dal punto di vista statistico, fino alla stesura di un manoscritto ed alla comunicazione ad un congresso.
I corsi vengono tenuti in Inglese per favorire la comprensione e l’utilizzo della terminologia scientifica e dello stile comunicativo adottato
a livello internazionale.
La padronanza del linguaggio tecnico e dello stile comunicativo sono requisiti indispensabili per:
- una fruizione agevole, autonoma e critica della letteratura scientifica relativa alle scienze mediche di base;
- la maturazione culturale e l’aggiornamento continuo nella vita professionale nell’ambito delle scienze dello sport;
- la comunicazione scritta del proprio lavoro scientifico, in diversi contesti;
- la presentazione orale del proprio lavoro scientifico, durante incontri/congressi internazionali.
- l’accesso alle principali fonti internazionali di finanziamento della ricerca scientifica.
- favorire il networking e lo scambio di studenti Un terzo del corso consisterà in lezioni frontali, un terzo in attività esercitative in diversi laboratori ed un terzo in attività svolte dallo studente in autonomia, con la supervisione di un tutor, e finalizzate alla stesura o realizzazione di un progetto di ricerca.
Il progetto di ricerca sarà la prova finale sulla base della quale lo studente verrà valutato ai fini del conseguimento del titolo di Master.

Professional profiles and employment and professional opportunities

L'esperto in ricerca applicata allo studio del movimento umano potrà inserirsi in strutture private come aziende produttrici di attrezzatura per lo sport e l’attività motoria, centri fitness, centri riabilitativi, centri benessere, etc., presentando una propria competenza sulla progettazione e conduzione di progetti ed attività di ricerca e la capacità di operare in un contesto di equipe multidisciplinare. Le competenze acquisite consentiranno all’esperto di ricerca applicata allo studio del movimento di essere maggiormente competitivo sul mercato nazionale e, grazie all’approfondimento della lingua inglese, internazionale della scienza per l’accesso a posizioni di dottorato, borsista, assegnista e post doc.

schema_qualita

First-cycle degrees: Bachelor’s degree programme

First-cycle degrees are aimed at enabling students to achieve a command of general scientific methods and content, and to acquire specific professional knowledge.
Admission requirements: secondary school diploma after completing 13 years of study in total and passing the relevant State examination, or equivalent foreign qualification; admission may be subject to further assessment.
Duration: three years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 180 CFU; doing an internship and preparing a dissertation/thesis may also be required. Upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree, graduates may continue their studies by enrolling in a Master’s degree or other second-cycle degree programmes and courses.
Academic title: upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree (Laurea), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore”.

Second-cycle degrees: Master’s degree

Second-cycle degrees aim to provide students with an advanced training and knowledge to take on highly-skilled roles.
Admission requirements: applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree, or a foreign equivalent qualification; curricular admission requirements for each course may vary depending on each University.
Duration: two years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 120 CFU, as well as preparing and presenting a dissertation/thesis.
Academic title: upon completion of a Master’s degree (Laurea Magistrale), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore magistrale”. Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees
Some courses (Medicine and Surgery, Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics, Pharmacy and Industrial Pharmacy, Architecture and Building Engineering-Architecture, Law, Primary Education) are offered as Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees (Corsi di Laurea Magistrale a Ciclo Unico).
Admission requirements: applicants must hold a secondary school diploma or equivalent foreign qualification; admission is subject to passing an admission test.
Duration: five years (six years and 360 CFU for Medicine and Surgery, and Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics).
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 300 CFU, as well as preparing and presenting a dissertation/thesis. Upon completion of a Single-cycle degree, graduates may continue their studies by applying for a PhD programme (Dottorato di Ricerca) or other third-cycle courses.
Academic title: upon completion of a Master’s degree (Laurea Magistrale), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore magistrale”.

Third-cycle degrees

PhD programmes: these courses enable students to gain reliable methodologies for advanced scientific research through innovative methodologies and new technologies, and generally include internships abroad and lab activities at research laboratories. Graduates wishing to apply for a PhD programme must have a Master’s degree (or a foreign equivalent qualification) and pass an open competition; PhD programmes have a minimum duration of three years. In order to complete the programme, students must produce a research thesis/dissertation and present it at a final examination.
Academic title: upon completion of a PhD programme, students are awarded the title of “Dottore di ricerca”, or “PhD”.
Postgraduate specialisation courses: these are third-cycle courses aimed at enabling students to develop advanced knowledge and highly-specialised skills, such as in the medical, clinical and surgical fields. To be admitted to these courses, applicants must have a Master’s degree (or a foreign equivalent qualification) and pass an open competition. Postgraduate specialisation courses may last from two (120 CFU) to 6 years (360 CFU) depending on the type. Academic title: upon completion of this programme, graduates are awarded a “Diploma di Specializzazione”.

Professional Master’s programme

1st-level Professional Master’s programmes: these courses enable students to further enhance their scientific knowledge and professional skills. In order to apply, applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree, or foreign equivalent qualification. The minimum duration is one year (60 CFU). Please note that completing this course will not provide you with direct access to a PhD programme (Dottorato di Ricerca), or other third-cycle courses, as these courses are run and managed by each University at the local level. Upon completion of this programme, students are awarded a “Master universitario di primo livello”.
2nd-level Professional Master’s programmes: these courses enable students to further enhance their scientific knowledge and professional skills. In order to apply, applicants must have a Master’s degree, or foreign equivalent qualification. The minimum duration is one year (60 CFU). Please note that completing this course will not provide you with direct access to a PhD programme (Dottorato di Ricerca), or other third-cycle courses, as these courses are run and managed by each University at the local level. Upon completion of this programme, students are awarded a “Master universitario di secondo livello”.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
