As a Major
The field of actuarial science applies mathematical principles and techniques to problems in the insurance industry. Progress in the field is generally based upon completion of examinations given by the Society of Actuaries. This major is designed to prepare students to pass the first two exams of the Society of Actuaries year 2000 exam structure and to provide partial preparation for the third exam. Students interested in this highly structured program are urged to contact the Department of Mathematics as early as possible, to meet with a faculty advisor.
