12 Best Acting (Performing arts/Drama theatre) schools in Ontario

Below is the list of best universities in Ontario ranked based on their research performance in Performing arts. A graph of 7.26K citations received by 1.25K academic papers made by 12 universities in Ontario was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish 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 an official site as it's constantly changing data.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and therefore prefers institutions researching arts through computer science.
