Research studies in fine and performing arts are based on artistic knowledge and artistic work. The focus of the studies is on independent artistic work as part of an artistic research project, with the aim of developing knowledge of artistic issues. Music education is an interdisciplinary research field and covers all forms of learning in music.
Research studies are carried out at the Art Academy, the Academy of Music and the Theatre Academy. The faculty is also home to the Inter Arts Centre (IAC), a meeting place for different art forms, researchers and artists in experimental projects that contributes to an exciting research environment. Through research studies programmes, research and the Inter Arts Centre, we have established ourselves as one of the leading international research institutions in the fine and performing arts and music education, a position we want to continue to reinforce and expand.
The Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts also coordinates Konstnärliga forskarskolan, the national graduate school in the arts, with doctoral students from different fine and performing arts programmes around Sweden.
