The Warren Centre for Actuarial Studies and Research offers a major in Actuarial Mathematics.
Involves the application of mathematical disciplines, particularly probability, statistics, and risk theory to real life financial problems involving future uncertainty.
Prior to registration, all students interested in or enrolled in Actuarial Mathematics should consult the Director or a Undergraduate Program Advisor for program planning advice.
To facilitate entry into and understanding of material covered in some advanced Actuarial courses, students entering the second year of the four-year program are advised to take the following courses: MATH 2720 plus MATH 2730 or MATH 2750 (which satisfies the elective requirement). Students declaring Actuarial Mathematics as their first major may take these course as either Business Options or non-Business Electives.
Students admitted in Fall 2006 and thereafter are required to attain a minimum grade of “C+” in all Actuarial courses in order to graduate with a Actuarial Mathematics Major.
