Contemporary Dance Didactics - Master

Contemporary Dance Didactics - Master

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. The Master Programme Contemporary Dance Didactics is a programme for you who work within the field of Dance Pedagogy and want to deepen your knowledge in and about dance, choreography and artistic processes from a contemporary didactic, aesthetic and sociocultural perspective. Here you will find information about the structure and content of the programme.

Contemporary Dance Didactics is a response to the ongoing development within the artistic as well as the scientific field. In both fields the limits are expanding on what is considered to be knowledge and how, by whom and in which context it is being created. Within the artistic field dance practices are extending into different contexts and new methods to create, show and teach dance are developing. At the same time as the notion of dance is challenged, within parts of the art field, and widens towards the performative, the demands on dance technique increases in other parts. The education in Contemporary Dance Didactics builds on these changed conditions and the students meet new dance didactic methods, a critical approach and an interactive way of working which is process oriented as well as result oriented.

The future workplace could be within the expanded art field. It could for an example be developing dance pedagogical projects in relation to issues on integration, equality, gender and democracy. It could also be more traditional performance activities like collaborative projects between dance pedagogues and different performance institutions with an aim of increasing diversity on stage.

  • 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. Uniarts has some possibilities of offering scholarships that cover the whole study fee or that subsidise it.

    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.

    The tuition fee for the Master’s Programme Contemporary Dance Didactics starting in the autumn of 2021 is SEK 89 500 for the first semester and SEK 716 000 for the programme as a whole.

    Scholarships to Cover the Tuition Fee

    If you are obliged to pay a tuition fee you can apply for a scholarship which covers the tuition fee. The scholarship does not cover any private costs during your studies. Please note that you still need to pay an application fee (900 SEK). The application fee is non-refundable.
