These highly sought-after professionals analyze historical data (a lot of it) to assess risk and forecast long-term patterns for companies in the insurance and financial industries. It’s an important job — without the expertise provided by actuaries, some of the world’s top organizations wouldn’t be able to sustain and grow their operations.
Our Actuarial Science Major
Our Actuarial Science degree is designed to give you exactly these critical skills. You’ll study mathematics and financial theory through courses emphasizing math, finance and risk management. Not only will you become an analytical master, but you’ll also learn how the field applies to a business’s wider operations. This expertise is highly valued by employers.
Professional Exam Preparation
In addition, the Actuarial Science degree also provides extensive preparation for the first exams (P/1, FM/2, MLC and MFE/3F) you’ll need to pass to become an actuary. You’ll also earn Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) credit, which can be applied to additional exams offered jointly by the Society of Actuaries, Casualty Actuarial Society and Canadian Institute of Actuaries.
