Bachelor in Dance is a three-year education that prepares you for a professional life as a performing and co-creative dance artist, as well as for further artistic, theoretical or pedagogical studies in dance. The main focus of the programme is contemporary dance. The studies are designed to help students achieve a high artistic level and a comprehensive knowledge base through work in both practical and theoretical subjects. Inquiry and reflection are embedded in the studies as you are challenged to investigate, analyze and reflect upon all aspects of your work. Exposure to different performance and creative practices and a broad range of historical, societal, cultural and artistic perspectives enables you to contextualize your own practice and develop as an independent dance artist. As a student you have many opportunities to create, co-create and perfom during the 3 years of study. Students receive close individual attention from their teachers through continual dialogue and regular supervision and assessment. The programme is international, the study language is English.

The Faculty of Performing Arts at the University of Stavanger is located in specially adapted premises in beautiful Bjergsted Park where students have access to several dance studios, changing rooms with showers and a sauna, classrooms and meeting rooms, a black box, concert hall, cafeteria with student lounge, and a newly-renovated branch of the university library specialized in music and dance.
