Degree Overview

Choreomundus, an Erasmus Mundus programme, is offered by a consortium of four universities (in Norway, France, Hungary and the UK) recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance. To apply, please visit the website.

Founded by Professors Egil Bakka, Georgiana Wierre-Gore, László Felföldi, and the late Professor Andrée Grau, the Choreomundus programme will help you make sense of intangible heritage within the postcolonial, culturally diverse world of the 21st century.

Delivered in connection with the local groundbreaking Masters in ethnochoreology/dance anthropology in each of the four universities, this unique two-year course will engender an appreciation of dance that is comparative, crosscultural, applied and embodied.

The universities that participate in this programme are: Université Clermont Auvergne (UCA), Clermont-Ferrand, France, as the coordinating institution; the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (NTNU); the University of Szeged, Hungary; and the University of Roehampton.

In the first semester, all students start in France for an induction and an intensive course. For the rest of the first academic year, they are divided between NTNU Trondheim and the University of Szeged, Hungary, and then spend their third semester in France, and the fourth and final semester at the University of Roehampton. Students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded a joint Masters degree from all four universities.
