This paper provides an overview of what comparative studies and interdisciplinary studies are and proposes that, at the proper level of sophistication, they can add considerable value to a liberal arts education and, in the process, help undergraduates find their vocations. Undergraduate programs in comparative and interdisciplinary studies should become a resource for every student in every department and not allow themselves to become, like the disciplines, compartmentalized and isolated from each other, accessible only to a discrete group of students.

Keywords: Interdisciplinary studies, Comparative studies, vocation
