The Academy of Music and Drama trains and educates composers, music, dance, and theatre teachers, musical theatre artists, musicians in many genres, opera-singers, performance artists and actors.
This means that we represent a unique breadth among artistic academies in Sweden, with unique opportunities for cooperating across genre limits. We have over 150 teachers who are often engaged in several different programmes and courses, as are the many guest teachers visiting us for shorter or longer periods. Our students number about 700. The Artisten building was completed in 1992, and it caters for our need of premises for our diverse activities.
Interim head of the Academy is Thomas Jäderlund.
The Academy of Music and Drama is one of three departments belonging to the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Gothenburg. In cooperation with the Faculty, we carry out postgraduate education and research in several different fields.
