Have you ever wondered how the Earth's processes work, why places differ from one another, and how humans relate to their environment? Geography is a discipline that bridges the social and natural sciences, and helps students to gain a holistic understanding of the world around them.
Who We Are
The Geography Department faculty have a wide range of interests and expertise, from postcolonial studies to geology to tourism to capitalistic critiques and more. Geography faculty encourage students to critically engage with the world around them by asking not only “what?” and “how?” but also “why?”.
Degrees & Certificates We Offer
The Geography Department does not offer a degree, but does offer courses in Geography of the United States, Introduction to Human Geography, Physical Geography, World Regional Geography, Minnesota Geography, and special topics or independent study.
Certain Geography courses at Anoka-Ramsey satisfy Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) requirements.

"Anoka-Ramsey offers many tools for students to become successful in their journey of higher education. I really appreciated the amount of support there is for non-traditional students such as myself."

"I chose Anoka-Ramsey to fulfill generals and core electives for an electrical engineering degree, to keep overall tuition inexpensive, and to stay close to home. The pre-engineering degree gives beginner engineering students the fundamentals that they need in mathematics, physics, engineering and chemistry. These are crucial to the development they need to build upon when transferring to a university to finish their bachelor's degree."
