About us

The Academy of Music and Drama trains and educates composers, musical theatre artists, musicians in many genres, opera-singers, performance artists, and actors as well as music, dance, and theatre teachers.

This means that we represent a unique breadth among artistic academies in Sweden, with diverse opportunities for cooperating across genres. We have over 150 teachers who are often engaged in several programmes and courses, as are the many guest teachers visiting us for shorter or longer periods. Our students number almost 600.

The Academy of Music and Drama is one of two departments belonging to the Artistic Faculty at the University of Gothenburg. In cooperation with the faculty, we carry out postgraduate education and research in several different fields.

Head of the academy is Jesper Lundgren.
