Our Certificate in Actuarial Studies provides a focus for students interested in pursuing a career in the actuarial sciences. The primary emphasis of this program is on the mathematical and statistical background that forms the foundation of the work in this area.

This certificate program is open to degree-seeking students only and is most suitable for students majoring in Mathematics or Statistics. It would also be valuable for those who wish eventually to enter the actuarial field, but choose to major in an allied discipline such as Business or Computer Science. In addition, it allows access to those students who are currently working in this area and wish to develop or upgrade their skills.
