This paper concerns comparative history as a new approach in the history teaching. Comparative history compares the historical institutions or ideas by seeing how they differ between societies. A comparative study could be some institutions or some ideas in different countries/cities at the same point in time, or at different times in same country/city. Civilisations, institutions, social movements, revolutions, ideologies, mode of productions, women movements, nationalism, enlightenment, minorities, immigrants etc. are all examples of comparative history. Training in comparative and interdisciplinary approach encourages its students to work in variety fields and to write comparative dissertations.
