EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in North Rhine-Westphalia ranked based on their research performance in Performing arts. A graph of 16.7M citations received by 754K academic papers made by 9 universities in North Rhine-Westphalia 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 subject rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science research profiles.
