Businesses need people who can collect and understand data, reason analytically, and apply mathematical models to real-world problems. The Mathematical Sciences major equips you with these important skills by focusing on the applications of mathematics and statistics.
Our Actuarial Science degree prepares you for a rewarding career in the actuarial field. Actuaries are in great demand by the insurance, financial services and consulting industries. Graduates are recruited for leadership development in top insurance companies.
An Actuarial Science major can provide extensive preparation for four actuarial exams (Exams P/1, FM/2, MLC and MFE/3F) as well all of the necessary VEE (Validation by Educational Experience) credit. In addition, qualified students will have the opportunity to pursue an internship in actuarial science.
Quantitative Perspectives Concentration
The liberally educated person knows how to be a critical thinker, and a critical thinker asks good questions. The Quantitative Perspectives concentration in the Liberal Studies major is designed to help you answer questions about the world through theoretical models and analytical thinking about real data.
The Quantitative Perspectives concentration is different from a traditional math major or minor in that it does not focus on a specific set of skills and techniques, but explores ways to make connections between quantitative analysis and other disciplines.
