Program Overview

Want to learn how to predict the future? Like using math and statistics to solve problems?

Actuaries use mathematical skills to define, analyze and solve business problems involving the cost of possible future events.

An actuary is a business professional who analyzes the financial consequences of risk. Actuaries use mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to study uncertain future events, especially those of concern to insurance and pension programs.

Program Outcomes

Our actuarial math undergraduate program will educate students on the various principles and practices of risk analysis and management. This program will focus on the mathematical probabilities and cost evaluation of several different types of events. 

Career Outlook

A career as an Actuary is better described as a “business” career with a mathematical basis than as a “technical” mathematical career. Graduates will also be able to work in several different mathematically related fields and will be able to enter the job market with a highly-demanded and particular set of skills.
