** Approval is required. The director of undergraduate studies approves cognates. For MedAnth, the department will accept Evolutionary Biology (EEB 309) and Life on Earth (EEB 211) as cognates if taken in AY 2019 to AY 2021 by students declaring the ANT concentration in Spring 2020 or earlier. These courses may substitute for a human evolution course or other biological anthropology course in either the required or elective course category, provided each student applies at most two cognates towards all departmental course requirements. Senior thesis advisers approve students' methodological and theoretical approaches to their senior theses.
