Academy of Dance
The Academy of Dance trains choreographers and dancers in contemporary dance, classical ballet and jazz dance. The training programmes equip students with technical dance skills and a broad experience of creative stage work.
Academy of Opera
Ever since its foundation in 1964, the Academy of Opera has served as Norway’s leading institution for opera education. We offer both a one-year programme and a Master’s programme in opera.
Academy of Theatre
The Academy offers a three-year Bachelor’s course for actors and directors and a two-year Master’s course in theatre, specialising in acting, direction, stage writing and stage design.
The Design department offers both Master’s and Bachelor’s programmes in graphic design, illustration, fashion design, costume design, interior design and furniture design.
Art and Craft
The Art and Craft department caters to students specialising in textile art, graphic art and drawing, ceramic art, metal and jewellery art. Students choose to specialise in one of these fields, but also have opportunities to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to medium- and material-based art.
Academy of Fine Art
Artistic practice is at the heart of studies at the Academy of Fine Art. We work across media, disciplines and approaches, exploring questions of form and material as well as post-conceptual, social and political issues.
