Anthropology focuses on the evolution of the human condition and provides a cross-cultural view of humanity. The description and explanation of human activities in other societies and during different periods of time provides a sense of perspective for individuals operating within their own culture. A minor may be focused on one or more of the sub-disciplinary divisions such as biology, archaeology, cultural anthropology, or applied anthropology. The minor may also be distributed across the fields, similar to the requirements of the major.
