Course description
Entitled Sport per lo Sviluppo, l’Integrazione e la Pace (Sport for Development, Integration and Peace), the programme offers an education that integrates theory and practice, culture and experience in order to achieve critical thinking skills as well as the ability to analyse globalisation phenomena and intercultural, socio-economic and institutional cooperation dynamics.

Participants will learn how to use sport as a vector for intercultural dialogue, development and peace, in overcoming crisis situations, conflicts and emergencies following natural disasters as well as various forms of social deprivation, marginalisation, underdevelopment, and the related risks of delinquency or dependency.

The Masters will focus on the following thematic areas:

  • Individual and society;
  • Development of the person and the community;
  • Physical activity, games and sport;
  • Culture and business management;
  • Language and communication;
  • Training activities.


The course lasts one year and is divided into two semesters for a total of 60 credits. Over the year long programme the student will cover five thematic areas, aimed at developing knowledge, skills and experience.
