Actuarial Science Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Concentrations & Minors

Actuaries use mathematics, probability, statistics, and financial theory to assess financial risk and uncertainty.  The concentration in actuarial science prepares students for entry-level positions in actuarial science, as well as other areas.  Prior to graduations, students typically pass at least two actuarial exams and complete the validation by educational experience (VEE) credits for either of the two actuarial societies (SOA or CAS).  The concentration also prepares students for entry into masters and Ph.D. programs in actuarial science, mathematics, mathematical finance, engineering, statistics, and other related disciplines.  Actuarial science frequently ranks very highly on best careers lists, and the job outlook for actuaries is excellent.
