The Master’s Degree Programme in Choreography is a full-time, two-year study programme that emphasises a historically conscious, yet critical, open, and research-based approach to choreography. The programme is open to international students and is tuition free for EU / EEA students. Admissions to the programme are every other year and in spring 2019 three to five new students will be accepted.

In its pedagogy, art and choreography are seen as material discourses which are in constant flux of interactions with society and its concerns, e.g. ecology, identity politics, theories of performance and artistic methods and practices. The programme offers the student a multifaceted learning environment that supports artistic and knowledge development, dialogue and collegial cooperation.

The programme is committed to cooperating with other degree programmes and students of Uniarts Helsinki, and the Theatre Academy’s performance facilities offer students exceptionally good opportunities for the making of artistic projects that are included in the programme’s curriculum. Moreover, the programme collaborates with the Theatre Academy’s Performing Arts Research Center and is proactive in study co-operations and in forming international partnerships.

Nordic Choreographic Platform (NCP)

The programme is part of the educational collaboration network Nordic Choreographic Platform during 2019-2021. The collaboration partners are DASPA (The Danish National School for Performing Arts), KHIO (Oslo National Academy of the Arts) and DOCH (School of Dance and Cirkus at Uniarts Stockholm). The NCP studies are included in the programme’s curriculum.
