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.

"Having taken creative writing classes at Anoka- Ramsey, I can honestly say that talent alone isn’t enough, no matter how talented. There’s so much I didn’t know. I’ve also learned that part of writing is having a network. You’ll never meet half the people you should without going to school."
