What will I learn?

The Certificate in Actuarial Studies is designed to provide the education needed for entry level employment in the actuarial profession. Those who complete the certificate will satisfy some of the Validation by Educational Experience requirement of the Society of Actuaries and be prepared to take the first two actuarial examinations (P and FM).

Career Outlook in Actuarial Science: Graduates with this skill set are hired by insurance firms, consulting firms, and financial institutions. Actuarial training is also transferable to broader jobs in data science and analytics. Job prospects for those with actuarial degrees are expected to remain strong over the next decade.
