Bachelor’s Programme in Acting

The Bachelor’s Programme in Acting is a three-year study programme. On completion of the programme, students will have gained knowledge and skills that make it possible to work as an actor in a professional context. Students will also be eligible for further studies at postgraduate level.

The teaching is organised as a coherent whole from the first semester to the last. It covers the subjects of stage performance, movement, voice and text, music, and song. These subjects are taught both individually and integrated with each other. Teaching is carried out on a one-to-one basis and in groups. On the theoretical parts of the programme, our ambition is to investigate, formulate and present how different aspects of the theatre can combine theory and practice in interaction with the age in which we live.

At Malmö Theatre Academy, we provide thorough training using practical acting tools such as “the method of physical action”. Over the different semesters, we work with studies – exercises – to gradually develop this skill hand in hand with the growing artistic experience. The fifth semester is an internship semester at a theatre in Sweden.

Our aim is to produce actors who have extensive knowledge and great freedom both in their physical and cognitive expressions, in order to be able to meet all the diverse challenges presented by theatre today.

Admission to the acting programme takes place once a year through entrance tests in several stages. The tests take place at the Theatre Academy.
