Sound Design - Bachelor

This programme has Swedish as its main language of instruction. More information about the programme and how to apply can be found on Uniarts Swedish site. This bachelor’s degree programme is for those who want to be sound designers in the world of the stage.

As a sound designer, you can work with theatrical productions, dance performances, musicals and other stage work. In your work, you will analyse the space and the sets to position speakers and other sound sources in ideal locations. Sometimes you will work closely with a composer or with musicians and singers. You will shape the stage performance through sound effects, audio landscapes and music. Sound design may also consist of a complex speaker rig and multiple body mics, for example, in a musical. In these situations, the acoustic image or the musical mix is the key focus.

The Bachelor’s Programme in Sound Design

Our programme gives you a solid foundation in sound design with a focus on the stage. Sound design has applications in many fields these days. The sound design programme will include courses in sound technique, dramaturgy, an introduction to composition of electroacoustic music and play analysis. You will be in charge of the sound at several practice productions with students from the other specialisations at the Stockholm University of the Arts.

  • 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.
