6 Best Acting (Performing arts/Drama theatre) schools in Norway

Below is the list of best universities in Norway ranked based on their research performance in Performing arts. A graph of 1.16K citations received by 208 academic papers made by 6 universities in Norway was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science profiles.
