Actuarial Science (BS)

Actuaries build mathematical models to account for the many risk factors organizations must consider when building strategy. Financial, logistical, and business risks all have to be carefully weighed against each other, and actuaries help paint a picture of the road ahead with numbers and statistics. As well as working for insurance companies, actuaries work for consulting firms, government agencies, accounting firms, industrial businesses, banks, and financial institutions.  The major provides a strong math foundation coupled with robust actuarial science courses.
