Mark T. Clark, PhD, is professor emeritus of political science and director of the National Security Studies program at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). He has published in a variety of scholarly venues on national security, nuclear weapons, arms control and intelligence, and the Christian perspective of just war doctrine. He coauthored (with Hugh Ross and Kenneth Samples) the book Lights in the Sky and Little Green Men: A Rational Christian Look at UFOs and Extraterrestrials.
With the help of several grants, he has helped establish CSUSB as an Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence (ICCAE) and he codeveloped a new MS degree in National Cyber Security Studies (along with the MA in National Security Studies), the first of its kind in the nation. With George Mason University, he has worked as lead analyst to demonstrate how evidence-based reasoning using a learning agent, called Cogent, can improve critical and analytical thinking skills and improve intelligence analysis with such tools in a crowd-sourced environment. He also has led seven different open-source research projects for the Institute for Analysis of the National Security Agency (NSA).
Mark served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1973 to 1977. Mark and his wife, Mara, serve in their local church, Sierra Vista Community Church, in Upland, CA. They live in La Verne, CA, and Durango, CO.
