Below is the list of best universities in Shanghai ranked based on their research performance in Performing arts. A graph of 77 citations received by 182 academic papers made by 6 universities in Shanghai 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.
