About the studies

The study module in musical theatre consists of master-level advanced studies organised by the University as joint instruction. We offer the student the basic skills to work as a performer in musical theatre, a field that requires mastery of several different skillsets.

The teaching method in the studies is group instruction. Students improve their skills in workshops and master classes that include dance, musical singing, voice control, ensemble singing and acting. As a student you will get to work in close collaboration with professionals of different artistic fields.

The study module comprises courses from Theatre Academy’s and Sibelius Academy’s selection. The studies constitute 10-30 credits.


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. Teachers in the spring term 2020 include Hanna Hurskainen, Petrus Kähkönen, Selina Sillanpää, Miiko Toiviainen, Maria Ylipää, Reeta Vestman, Laura Virtala and Reija Wäre.
