The two-year master's programme in Performing Arts is the first of its kind to be offered in Denmark. The Master of Fine Arts in Performing Arts (MFA) centres on professional artistic practice and artistic research. Unlike an academic master’s degree, the aim is to develop each student into an original and ground-breaking artist.

The master’s programme offers two artistic specialisations. When applying, you must choose which specialisation path you wish to follow. 

Each student will follow an independent path through the overall programme according to their chosen specialisation and their qualifying bachelor programme. Whether you have a background in acting, directing, stagecraft, dance, stage management, lighting, sound design, or another area within the performing arts field, you can apply for both specialisation. You will have one main study supervisor throughout the course of study. In addition, your subject-specific work will afford the chance to collaborate with one or more instructors. 

The specialisations focus on the interaction between subject-specific professionalism, entrepreneurship, and artistic research. The objective is to develop your professional basis further and create an opportunity to specialise in an artistic field that you want to develop to a high professional level. You will learn to independently create and organise artistic projects nationally and internationally.

IT IS OUR AIM TO CREATE AN OPEN SPACE FOR LEARNING WHERE ALL MASTER’S STUDENTS ARE GIVEN THE POSSIBILITY TO FOLLOW AN INDIVIDUAL PATH TO THEIR GOALS.
