M.S. in Actuarial Science Program at Temple University

Temple University offers one of the most distinguished Actuarial Science programs in North America. Located in the Department of Risk, Insurance, and Healthcare Management at Temple’s Fox School of Business and Management, the Actuarial Science program affords the opportunity to earn a Master of Science (M.S.) degree while taking electives in other business disciplines. Students in the graduate program often find actuarial internships during the academic year and summers. The program enjoys an exceptional record of placing graduating students in interesting and well-compensated full-time positions.

The Philadelphia and New York metropolitan areas form a major center for insurance, reinsurance, and related consulting activities in the United States. At Temple University, with its main campus close to center city Philadelphia, you will be well positioned to take full advantage of the professional opportunities of the region.

The Actuarial Science program maintains a close, ongoing, and dynamic relationship with the actuarial and insurance communities. As a Temple graduate student, you will:

  • meet professional actuaries who regularly visit campus,
  • receive timely information on internships and full-time employment, and
  • have the opportunity to be featured in the department’s resume book.

In addition to its influence at the regional level, the Actuarial Science program enjoys a strong reputation both nationally and internationally. Past and present students have come from the United States, Brazil, China, India, Jamaica, the Ivory Coast, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Ukraine. Temple’s program is thus helping to prepare the next generation of actuaries not only in the United States, but in many other countries, especially those of the Pacific Rim.
