Master in Music Performance
Study at the University of Stavanger
Our vision is “to challenge established facts, explore the unknown, gain insight and find wisdom, to benefit society at large and our students and staff.”
In order to realise this vision, we need staff, students and people around us who are curious and hungry for knowledge. We are convinced that a collective commitment to this ambitious vision will help us produce wiser individuals who will be better equipped to meet the future and everyday challenges.
UiS, like all Norwegian higher education institutions, has implemented measures dictated by the Quality Reform. The two main reasons for the reform are achieving improved quality in higher education and research and following up the Bologna's process and Norway's obligations in that regard.

The Masters in Music Performance is aimed at music graduates with ambitions to become performing musicians in their respective field. In addition to the compulsory 60 credits of instrumental study, the Masters programme allows students to specialise in various areas, e.g. chamber music, accompaniment, solo repertoire orchestra playing.
The programme is organised in four modules, of which two are connected to the performance major, and two are reserved for a combination of diverse electives (both performing/practical and theoretical subjects). A church music education is possible within the framework of the Masters in Music Performance.
As a new addition, improvisation is offered as a specialist area – without specifying any idiomatic direction, students may come from a variety of backgrounds (jazz, contemporary music, electronica etc).
