Mutri Doctoral School of Music Education, Jazz and Folk Music

The MuTri doctoral school is responsible for doctoral education at the Faculty of Music Education, Jazz and Folk Music of Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy.


The faculty’s doctoral education takes places mostly at five departments (jazz, folk music, music education, music technology, and arts management). The doctoral academy hosts over 60 students. An equal number of students are enrolled in both scientific and artistic education. Students enrolled in scientific doctoral education number highest in the department of music education. Doctoral artistic education is mostly completed in the jazz and folk music departments. A sixth of all students are enrolled in applied studies. Open discussion is at the heart of everything we do. This is apparent not only amongst staff but also between staff and students.

Artistic activities following doctoral education are integrated into doctoral education. For instance, doctors employed by the faculty participate in doctoral seminars and supervise doctoral studies.
