Actuarial Science

Department of Science and Mathematics

The Actuarial Science major combines math and finance in order to prepare you to become an actuary. Actuaries are consistently ranked in the top five careers in the nation based on work environment, employment outlook, job security, growth opportunity and salary. Actuaries compute and help manage risk. The main employers of actuaries are insurance companies, private corporations and the government. Many actuaries work as consultants.

Becoming an actuary requires passing several exams over a six to 10 year period. You should be prepared to take the first test after taking Probability Theory (MAT 4200).

Mathematics is the language we use to analyze, understand, and predict God’s Creation (Gen. 1:28).¬† Students at Grace will learn to write coherent proofs in a way that succinctly communicates truth, and they will be challenged to creatively solve problems relevant¬† to our world.
