It was started in 2005.[1] as a merger of the former departments of music, theater and opera at the university.

The main campus building is Artisten in Gothenburg.

The school also acts as a training center for orchestral music. The programme is called the Swedish National Orchestra Academy (SNOA) and was started by the then head Ingemar Henningsson after preparatory work with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (Göteborgs Symfoniker). The two-year program organizes about 8 or 9 orchestral projects per academic year.
