Students in the actuarial science concentration take additional course work in finance and economics, preparing them to complete the first two professional actuarial exams and to pursue employment in the areas of insurance and investment.
You'll gain a thorough background in mathematics and take advantage of coursework in finance and economics to give you the well-rounded preparation you need for your actuarial exams. Some of the classes you will take include: Probability and Statistics for Natural Sciences, Differential Equations, Introduction to Mathematical Proofs, Mathematical Statistics II, Introduction to Financial Mathematics, Topics in Applied Computational Mathematics, Time Series Analysis.
Because of the high academic standards of our program, you must receive a B or higher grade in course work that carries Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) from the Society of Actuaries (SOA) (required for SOA credential).
