What is the Actuarial Science program? 

The University of Minnesota Actuarial Science undergraduate program prepares students to play a role in financial services and data analytics fields, especially within insurance and risk analysis. The program provides a strong background in mathematics, statistics, economics, insurance, finance, and programming. Students participate in technical and applied courses taught by credentialed actuaries and professors as well as visiting practicing actuaries. Courses and workshops prepare students for the actuarial exams and other Society of Actuary (SOA) and Casualty Actuary Society (CAS) requirements.
