Mathematics, Actuarial Sciences Concentration, B.A.

Our graduates go on to teach in public and private school systems. They find employment as actuaries, in the financial sector, with private companies and with government agencies. Many will go to graduate school and earn advanced degrees in Mathematics, Statistics, Information Technology, Engineering, Business and other fields.

  • Encourage guided discovery approaches to problem solving
  • Interactive study room offers organic collaboration and support from faculty, and snacks!
  • Students explore in groups at the blackboard or with mathematical manipulatives
  • You'll develop important communication, interpersonal and team skills


Program Description

Students in the Actuarial Sciences Program work toward completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics with a concentration in Actuarial Sciences. This program is perfect for students interested in using their quantitative skills in applications of statistical and risk-based methods. Students in the program will complete courses that will satisfy all of the Validation through Educational Experiences (VEE) requirements within the Society of Actuaries (SOA). They will also complete courses that will thoroughly prepare them for the actuarial exams P/1 Probability and FM/2 Financial Mathematics.

The program requires the completion of 61-65 credits, depending on the student's course selections.

Actuarial Sciences (61-65 credits)

Mathematics Requirements (36 credits)

Business Requirements (12 credits)

Economics Requirements (9 credits)

Programming Requirements (3-4 credits)

Required Capstone Experience

A capstone experience must be completed. This requirement can be fulfilled by one of the following:

 *Any Internship credits or Independent Study credits used to fulfill the "9 Additional Credits" area within the 36-credit Mathematics requirements cannot be used to fulfill the Capstone Experience.

Optional Recommended Courses (12 credits)
