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.

"I chose Anoka-Ramsey for three reasons: Affordability, transferability and location. It is the most affordable tuition in the state, and one of the lowest in the country. I want to transfer to the University of Minnesota’s Bio-chemical program, and my courses will transfer. And it is located on the Mississippi.
The best things about Anoka-Ramsey, though, are the great resources-the Academic Support Center, the Advising Center, the Counseling Center have nice staff committed to your success."

“Anoka-Ramsey has so much to offer for art students. They have a wide range of class types, including glass blowing, which is not very common. The professors and lab assistants work hard to inspire students and give helpful feedback.”
