Department of Urban and Rural Development - SLU

The Department of Urban and Rural Development is a multidisciplinary department. In our research and teaching we focus on the societal aspects of SLU’s areas of responsibility. At the department we share common interests in development, planning and communication for natural resource management and land use. Our research is grounded in social sciences, and humanities and landscape design principles, but is also characterized by interdisciplinary approaches in which natural sciences are important.
