Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Featured Program: Actuarial Science

“The courses I took as a part of the actuarial science program helped me prepare for two rigorous actuarial exams, which ultimately led to an internship and a full-time job. I am now able to apply many of the concepts I learned in my classes at my current job.”

—Kurt Kaskey
