  • Twelve hours at the 300 and 400 levels from the list of approved BAIS electives at least one course and no more than two from each discipline of geography, history, and political science. Majors in political science, history, and geography may not count courses in their major discipline towards the minor.

For completion of a minor, an undergraduate student must have a minimum grade point average of 2.00 in all upper-level courses taken towards the minor. A minimum of 6 hours in upper-level courses in the minor requirement must be taken at ODU. The credit awarded towards the minor for participation in a model international organization (Model UN, Model OAU, or Model OAS) is limited to three hours.

BAIS minors must file a minor certification form with the director of BAIS when an application for graduation is filed with the major program advisor.
