No they cannot force you to study alima. Islam doesn't force anyone to do anything against their will. Of course you should learn about Islam's law and follow. It doesn't mean you will only be a better muslim if you study Alima, you will be a better muslim IF you know Islam, studying alima is not the only way to know islam. You can read Quran, hadith, watch preaching and debate and improve you knowledge.
Forcing you to do Alima will only make you hate it. Of course you can try it and do better in alima, but don't force yourself if you absolutely don't want to do it. But don't stop learning Islam because you don't do alima.
Alima is for learning Islam's shariah, Quran, hadidh, Arabic knowledge, etc. If you can do it by yourself you do it. But don't hate alima because you have to be under strict muslim environment. Only under strict environment can you be obedient and learn better.
