1.1 ComparativeStudies 
Comparative studies, also called cross-cultural studies sometimes, are a specialization in the science of humanity that uses field data from many societies to examine the scope of human behavior and test hypotheses about human behavior and culture. 
Comparative studies encourage critical reflection about culture across the boundaries of the discipline, nation, and language. 
Self-reflective and critical analyses of social, cultural, historical and political contexts are central to work in comparative studies.Using interdisciplinary and comparative methods ofinquiry, scholars work to account for the complexities of social relations and human existence. 
Comparative studies students are encouraged to develop their critical and analytical skills and to become effective global citizens, guided by an ethos of mutual respect and persistent questioning, and the recognition of the value and pleasures of critical intellectual work.
All knowledge is situated.A comparative study can be about how different human societies organize themselves through the production of knowledge,discourses, and material practices.It can be about the disciplinary assumptions,cultural norms and values, and political relations that shape social existence around the globe and across history.It can investigate areas such as religion, science, visual culture, folklore, literature, sexuality, race, and ethnicity. 
In this modern time of globalization, cross-cultural studies are applied widely in the social sciences, particularly in cultural anthropology and psychology.
