The University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki)

Call for Applications for MA in Choreography

Application period 9 – 23 January 2019.
Please note that the application period ends at 3pm (UTC +02:00).

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 into the programme.

The programme seeks out motivated and committed students who already have a bachelor's degree, preferably experience in the field of dance art and artistic work of their own, as well as a willingness to deepen their own understanding, knowledge and skills and to be part of a conversational and research-oriented community with an open-minded outlook on dance art and choreography.

In the programme, art and choreography are seen as material discourses that are in constant flux of interactions with society and its concerns, e.g. ecology, identity politics, theories of performance and artistic traditions, 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 the University of the Arts Helsinki (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).
