Actuarial Mathematics Learning Goals
The Actuarial Mathematics program prepares students for success in the actuarial field by promoting the following learning goals:
- Coursework that prepares students for at least 4 exams given by the Society of Actuaries with an expectation that a student will successfully complete 2 exams by graduation.
- Coursework that requires a minor in a business discipline that develops leadership, communication, and teamwork skills, enabling the student to secure one or more actuarial internships prior to graduation.
- Coursework that emphasizes statistical skills and allows the student to complete the SAS Certification program.
- Coursework that emphasizes strong computer skills for business applications.
