About

Actuaries assemble and analyze data related with risks to answer questions such as how much to charge policy-holders for auto, life or health insurances, how to set up retirement plans, how to formulate investment strategies in light of future risks. The Actuarial Science program is offered at Binghamton University.

Overview

Binghamton University offers two degrees in this field: BA in Actuarial Science and BS in Actuarial Science. To become an actuarial major is probably the best way to get into the track. 

However, before you declare a major in actuarial science, you may want to take a second and think about the following questions very carefully:

  • Have you shown strong aptitude in mathematics or quantitative skills in general? An example would be grades of your calculus courses. Usually, if you did not get a grade greater than B in calculus, it is early indicator that you may have some problems in the actuarial program. In extreme cases, you may suffer from studying something that you are not very good at, fail several attempts to an exam and may not even find a job related to actuarial career after graduation.
  • Are you a self-motivated person? Can you work on yourself to study the materials without an instructor standing behind you who forces you to study the stuff? Do you study because you want to become an actuary or your parents want you to become an actuary? Remember there are still many exams to take even after you graduate from college.
