This bachelor’s degree programme is for those who want to work as production managers. The performing arts include theatre, dance, opera, circus, musical theatre, performance art or combinations of these types of performances.

The purpose of the programme is to give you an overall perspective on the performing arts and an understanding of how to take responsibility for an entire organisation and head productions and projects.

The Bachelor’s Programme in Production Management for the Performing Arts

The production manager has overall responsibility for production and is a supervisor in charge of personnel matters. As a production manager, you will develop, lead, collaborate and run productions and projects based on the artistic and financial frameworks.

You will become familiar with how a production is organised, planned, financed and communicated.
You will balance all this in relation to the artistic process, always keeping an eye to what the audience wants.

As a production manager, you will receive training with the goal that you should develop and take part in the artistic responsibility for a production. You will also learn about cultural policy and how it controls and affects the performing arts and the arts in general.

We train production managers through theoretical instruction, teamwork, trips, networking, study visits and a lengthy internship in the last year of the programme.
We collaborate with other bachelor’s programmes at the Department of Performing Arts in theoretical instruction and exercises in production and projects. Your interaction with other performing arts students is pivotal for your understanding and in-depth grasp of your professional role; at the same time, it provides opportunities to test your leadership and your professional skills. Various types of performing arts are covered, and more advanced studies are provided based on the student’s own needs.

  • Application and tuition fees

    If you are a Swedish citizen or a citizen of another EU or EEA country you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. Some other groups are also exempt from the requirement to pay application and study fees.

    A few years ago Sweden introduced application and tuition fees for higher education. The level of the study fees depends on which course/programme they are for, and the level is set in order to cover the actual costs of the course/programme in question.

    If you are required to pay an application fee, we need to have received your payment by the last date for applications. The application fee is SEK 900. If you are required to pay the application fee and we have not received your payment by the last date for applications, we will not process your application.
