The Circus Department encompasses various aspects of the circus art form through educational programmes, courses and research activities within circus such as Phd-studies and various research projects led by members of our staff. Our professors, doctoral students and those of our teachers who also conduct research generate new knowledge within artistic research. The Department of Circus is an international milieu with students from all over the world. Programmes and courses are taught in English.
In 2014, the School of Dance and Circus (DOCH) merged with several other arts universities to become the Stockholm University of the Arts (SKH). SKH provides education and conducts research in the fields of circus, dance, film, media, opera and performing arts. With a unique composition of education and artistic research, SKH offers opportunities for deepening study and creating collaborative transdisciplinary projects.
We offer four higher education programmes: a Bachelor’s Programme in Circus, a Master’s Programme in Contemporary Circus Practices, independent courses for ongoing professional development, and the possibility to study artistic research in circus at the Doctoral level.

Research education at SKH is offered through the research subject Performative and Mediated Practices, which has four specialisations:
Circus as a field of research fits into these specialisations, depending on the focus of the research project.
By creating an active, critical and dynamic environment for research, SKH enables doctoral students to develop their work in a way that contributes to artistic research as a transdisciplinary field and to strengthening the link between research and the first- and second-cycle programmes.
