About the studies

The study module in musical theatre consists of master-level advanced studies organised by the University as joint instruction. The module gives the student the basic skills to work as a performer in musical theatre.

The teaching method in the studies is group instruction. Students improve their skills in dance, musical singing, voice control, ensemble singing and acting. The goal is to select students who can perform successfully as a musical theatre ensemble.

The study module comprises courses from the Theatre Academy’s and Sibelius Academy’s selection. The studies are completed during two academic terms and constitute 10-30 credits. Students may also choose to complete courses only during one academic year.

See our study guide for degree structure and course descriptions (to be updated in November)


The coordinating teacher in the study module is Markku Luuppala-Roos. Other teachers in the module are part of the University’s lecturer staff as well as visiting experts. During the spring term of 2019, our teaching staff included Reeta Vestman, Samuel Harjanne and Reija Wäre.


Students to the musical theatre study module are selected based on auditions.

More information on applying will be updated later.
