Actuaries use mathematics and financial theory to determine the financial effect that uncertain future events such as birth, death, retirement, fire, accident, and sickness have on insurance and other benefit plans. Actuaries may work for insurance companies, employee benefits, consulting firms, or the benefits department of general business and government agencies.

About

The competitive actuarial profession requires mathematics graduates to have analytical, statistical, and computational skills, which allow them to solve industrial problems, predict the financial effects of uncertain future events, and carry out decision-making analyses. Students graduating from the program who plan to pursue careers in actuarial science can expect to succeed on the first one or two professional actuarial science examinations, and thus be ready to enter the actuarial profession. Students graduating from the program who choose not to become actuaries are well prepared to enter industry and work in such areas as quality control, computational analysis, information management, forecasting, risk analysis, simulation, and finance. A student wishing to pursue graduate study in mathematics or business is certainly prepared for either discipline.
