It brings together faculty and scholars from across the campus to promote interdisciplinary research on issues affecting people around the globe. It offers majors in African, East Asian, Latin American, Russian and East Asian studies, as well as an international studies double major and a major in ethnicity, race and migration.

In addition to serving as a consultant to numerous international organizations and developing countries, Ranis was director of the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics 1959-1961 and director of the Economic Growth Center at Yale 1967-1975. He served as assistant administrator for program and policy in the U.S. Agency for International Development 1965-1967.

Ranis has held fellowships and visiting professorships at universities throughout the world, and has written extensively on theoretical and policy-related issues of development.
