The Actuarial Science Concentration trains students how to use mathematics, statistics, business, and economics to analyze and plan for future situations involving financial uncertainties and risks. This concentration is designed to qualify students to take the first two examinations administered by the Society of Actuaries and provides the foundation for the remaining examinations.
Effective Fall 2015
A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses which are required for graduation.
