Department of International Environment and Development Studies

(Noragric)

P

Noragric is one of five departments in the Faculty of Landscape and Society. Since its establishment in 1986 as a centre at the former Norwegian Agricultural University, Noragric has played an important role in developing institutional collaboration agreements with the university's many partners in Africa, Asia and South East Europe. These collaborations not only offer NMBU students the opportunity to take part of their studies abroad, but also for NMBU to welcome students and researchers to Ås.

Noragric staff and students engage in interdisciplinary studies on a wide range of issues concerning poverty, livelihoods, gender, property rights, environmental management, conflict, peace building and post-conflict development in sub-Saharan Africa, South- and Southeast Asia and South America.

Study at Noragric

At Noragric, there is focus on social justice, environmental sustainability, ecological and social resilience, political ecology, natural resource management, resource conflicts, development policies and politics, the effects of planned development interventions and gender and development issues.

The department offers Bachelor, Master and PhD programmes in international environment and development studies and international relations.
