The Bachelor's Degree in Strategic Sciences provided by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is reserved to Trainees Officers of the Italian Army. It meets the need of the Army to have a training programme for the future officers of the various Armed Forces. The programme is set up in accordance with the military Authorities and under their provisions. The Degree Programme offers a wide-ranging cultural and technical preparation, the general approach is based both on the methodological rigour of the scientific subjects and on legal, economic and sociological issues. This allows the Student/Officer-to-be to acquire the knowledge and the skills needed to continue his/her studies by enrolling in the Master's Degree Programme, but also to provide the theoretical-practical training necessary to operate, with command, administration, management, and coordination tasks, in the specific areas 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.

Course content

Beside the specific military and sport training, these studies offer both a technical/scientific education and a law, socio-political and economic training. 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.

Career options

Graduates in Strategic Science obtain the First Rank Official in the Permanent Unrestricted Line of the Army and get the skills required to command and direct in relation to the organisation, preparation and management of personnel, specific means and materials, activities related to logistic and administrative procedures for the operation of military structures. Graduates continue their studies based on the needs of the Army Force as a precondition of the activity that they will carry out within structures owned by the Ministry of Defence, including Bodies/Branches/Divisions/Units or in missions abroad.
