The Bachelor's Degree in Strategic Sciences provided by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is reserved to Trainees Officers of the Army. It meets the Army's need to have a training path for future officers of the various Arms, this path is established in agreement with and according to the provisions of the military authorities. The degree programme offers a wide-ranging cultural and technical preparation; the general approach is based both on the methodological rigour of scientific subjects and on legal, economic and sociological issues. This enables the trainee officer/officer to acquire the knowledge and acquire the necessary skills to continue his studies in the Master's Degree, but also to provide the theoretical-practical training required to operate, with command, management and coordination tasks, in the specific sectors of the Armed Forces and security. In addition, students learn how to manage and direct organisational and functional systems, even not necessarily of military nature, and to protect the strategic interests of Italy and the European Union. For a more specific differentiation of the professional profiles, the course of study includes three different training programmes.

Programme contents

Beside the specific military and sport training, these studies offer both a technical/scientific education and a law, socio-political and economic education. The English language and physical and political geography are broadly taught because of the military requirement to belong to the NATO and other international organisations.

Job opportunities

Graduates in Strategic Sciences attain the rank of First Officer in the Normal Role of the Armed Forces on permanent service and acquire the functional competences for the exercise of command and leadership skills connected with the organisation, preparation and management of personnel, specific means and materials, and activities connected with logistical procedures for the operation of military structures. They continue their training according to the requirements of the Armed Forces as a prerequisite for the activities they will carry out within the Ministry of Defence's own structures such as Organisations/Detachments/Departments/Commands or in missions abroad.
