This program major is an interdisciplinary major with an advisor from the Department of Mathematics.

The major also provides coursework to prepare a graduate for a career in the business world in which the insurance industry is focused. More direct contact with actuaries comes through the student organization Gamma Iota Sigma. These programs offer students a comprehensive training in thinking, reasoning, and problem solving, all of which will strengthen skills for many careers in business, industry, government, and more. Graduates of the mathematics and statistics programs will find a variety of career opportunities. Some of these may require additional education: actuary; applied mathematician; business administrator; computer scientist; database manager; elementary, middle, or high school teacher; information specialist; mathematician; statistician; and university or college professor.
