    Actuarial Science is the discipline that applies mathematical and statistical methods to assess risk in the insurance and finance industries. Actuarial science involves relationships of probability, mathematics, statistics, finance, economics and computer programming. By applying all of these principles, actuaries assess risk levels in a wide range of industries.

    For the Actuarial Science track in mathematics, students are required to take 120 credit hours of work for the major and the basic curriculum courses in natural sciences and mathematics as stated in the general catalogue. Students are also encouraged to take business courses such as corporate finance, accounting, risk analysis, and insurance.
