Norwegian Theatre Academy
Østfold University College offers 60 subjects of study at three regional cities – Fredrikstad, Halden and Sarpsborg. Østfold University College has approximately 4.000 students and 450 staff members. We offer a range of bachelor’s degree programmes and a few master’s degree programmes.
Østfold University College offers a steadily growing number of courses that can be studied as part of your home university degree. These courses are taught in English (alternatively: in German or French). For all English taught courses or programmes, good English skills (intermediate level) are required.
The artistic profile of the programmes
The artistic profile of the courses is inspired by international theatre art in which the perception of images, space, sound and bodily awareness are central elements. Theatre forms that experiment with classical drama and crossover art forms are used as references to investigate the challenges facing theatre in contemporary society. The programmes focus on different forms of interaction between scenography (space) and acting (human beings and their actions), on creating genuine artistic collaboration between students, and on challenging meetings between artists and students from different countries and artistic traditions.
