Bachelor of Arts in Political Science
Understanding the policies and decisions that shape your life on the local, national, and international level requires keen insight and expert analysis. The political science major at Clark helps you explore this dynamic subject across three crucial areas — American politics and public policy, comparative politics, and international relations — in the context of a foundational liberal arts education.
You’ll investigate a range of issues that reverberate within and beyond Clark’s campus, including civil liberties, human rights, elections, and globalization. In line with our focus on action-based learning, you’ll collaborate with faculty members and peers to drive positive change through your research, internships, and service projects, at home and abroad.

A minimum of 13 courses are required to complete the political science major. Foundational classes in research methods and political theory will show you how to articulate, evaluate, defend, and rebut answers to the questions that political scientists ask. You’ll choose a subfield of political science (American politics and public policy, comparative politics, or international relations), taking courses from the introductory level to an advanced capstone seminar. Classes outside your subfield, as well as Economics and the World Economy and a course in history, will broaden your knowledge base. You’ll have flexibility in your course selection.
Qualified students can join the Clark chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society.
Skills you will learn include how to:
- Conduct political science research using appropriate data and methods
- Formulate a research question and a thesis statement, and write a critical literature review
- Use evidence to articulate and defend arguments about the relative merits of political actions, policies, and types of political institutions
- Analyze and evaluate arguments and statements made by both scholars and political actors
- Communicate effectively in both written and oral form
