Welcome to the Department of Urban and Rural Development

At the Department of Urban and Rural Development we teach and carry out research in the fields of landscape architecture, environmental impact assessment, environmental communication, rural development and agroecology.

The Swedish Center for Nature Interpretation (SCNI) is also a part of our department. We are united by our interest in the relationship between man and environment, and the sustainable use of natural resources.

It is strongly forbidden to bring peanuts, or any food containing peanuts, in to the department's premises. This is because we have a student with acute hypersensitivity.
