Admission to PhD Programmes

Students can only be accepted to the Academy of Music and Drama's Ph.D. Programmes when a special call for applicants has been issued with the exception of applicants who have guaranteed external financing.

When openings in the PhD Programmes are advertised, doctoral candidate positions for the same duration as the Ph.D. Programme requires (i.e., four years) will also be advertised. This means that Ph.D. students and doctoral candidates will be employed for a fixed four-year term and at a fixed salary. The starting salary (2016) is SEK 24,600 per month. Once a student has completed 50% of the Ph.D. Programme, their monthly salary will be raised to SEK 27,050. Once 75% of the programme has been completed, it will be raised again to SEK 29,300.

The next round of admissions will be advertised here.

Detailed instructions and requirements for applicants can be found in the general syllabi for each Ph.D. programme's subject. Links to these syllabi can be found at the top of this page.

  • Music Education

    Music education as a science studies all forms of music teaching, including the frameworks, conditions, traditions and terms governing the situations in which music constitutes the contents of the various processes of teaching and learning.

    Problems are thus addressed in contexts in which music is or has been a constituent in upbringing, education, teaching and other types of influential behaviour practised in a certain cultural situation.

    Music education as a field of research is cross-border as to its character, using theories and methods from for example pedagogy, psychology, sociology, philosophy and musicology in order to understand and explain various phenomena within music pedagogy.

    Postgraduate education aims at providing an all-round scientific training that will also provide good preparation for assignments in society in which knowledge and skills in music education as a science are of value.
    By means of this education, the doctoral students will acquire qualified knowledge about music education as a science, a broad training in theory and research methods and the capacity to undertake independent research work.

    The work on a thesis, which is the most voluminous and significant element of doctoral education, is intended to instill in the student the capacity to analyse critically a problem relevant to the field of research in music education, and independently to plan, carry through and document in writing this scientific work.

    Eligibility for doctoral education in music education requires among other things 80 HECs in the subject music education.

  • Research on Arts Education

    Research on Arts Education as a discipline studies all forms of teaching/learning processes within the aesthetic field of knowledge, including the frameworks, the prerequisites, the traditions and the conditions that govern the situations where these fields of knowledge make up the content of the different teaching/learning processes.

    Thus, problems are treated in contexts where music, dance, visual culture, and the like, have been a part of upbringing, education, teaching or other influence exerted in a certain cultural situation. Research on Arts Education as a field of research is interdisciplinary in character and uses theories and methods from education, psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, musicology, art history and artistic research, for example, in order to understand and explain phenomena within the aesthetic field of knowledge.

  • Performance in Theatre and Music Drama

    Doctoral education in Theatre and Music Drama addresses experienced performing artists at advanced (second cycle) level who wish to carry out an independent artistic research project on the basis of their own practice, and develop their reflection skills and critical ability.

    The doctoral subject Performance in Theatre and Music Drama examines and develops forms and conditions for dramatic creation, from an artistic perspective with reference to critical and theoretical perspectives of knowledge. The subject embraces artistic forms of dramatic expression such as theatre and music drama, in a wide sense. Our aim is to educate artistic researchers to have the ability to examine issues that are significant to this art form, to contribute to the base of knowledge and method development in this field and in the field of artistic research, to contribute to the development of the dramatic arts and to promote the development of teaching in the different forms of the dramatic arts.

    Applicants should be able to show evidence of solid experience and artistic excellence in the dramatic arts, as well as a documented interest in the issues, critical discussion and development processes surrounding the dramatic arts. We will primarily give priority to performing artists i.e. actors, performers, singers etc.

    Since 2010, there are two different research profiles, i.e. one that leads to a doctoral degree in the arts, i.e. a Doctor of the Arts. The main focus of the doctoral degree in the arts is an artistic production/manifestation that is documented and reflected upon.

    The doctoral programme is located at the Academy of Music and Drama, in close connection with the undergraduate (first cycle) and master's (second cycle) programmes in theatre, opera, musical theatre and music – and several doctoral subjects.
