Anthropology imparts a global, comparative, and historical (evolutionary) approach to human studies. Its subject is cultural diversity and biological variation among humans both contemporary and ancient. It seeks to answer who we are, where we come from, what is learned, and what is instinctual. Anthropology is divided into two major categories: cultural and physical. Cultural anthropology tests the accuracy of beliefs about human behavior. Physical anthropology seeks accuracy of beliefs about human biological nature and development. Specializations in anthropology include archeology, linguistics, cultural resource management, forensics, paleontology, medical anthropology, and counseling among others. In any professional career, it is increasingly important to have a concrete understanding of human behavior in a cultural context. Anthropology offers that understanding.
