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.

“The teachers here are great, they’re always willing to work with you, especially if you have a question on your homework. They will take the time to go over the material until you understand it even if you’re visiting three times a week. The Cambridge Campus is also a little more secluded while having an amazing natural environment around it that makes for a peaceful and productive learning environment.”

“I was hesitant about attending Anoka-Ramsey, because I was not sure if going to a community college would be the right fit for me. I was worried that I would regret the decision of going to a community college before a university, however, after two years spent at Anoka-Ramsey I do not regret my decision at all. Anoka-Ramsey has exceeded my expectations. The classes and professors are engaging and kind. There is an active student body, and I feel perfectly at home!”
