Actuaries specialize in the evaluation of insurance and financial risks. They hold positions of responsibility with insurance companies, consulting firms, investment banks, government regulatory organizations, and government insurance programs. Actuaries must also pass a series of professional exams, administered by the Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society, to receive the credential of Associate or Fellow. These professional exams are both quantitative and qualitative, demanding that the actuary demonstrate expertise in a variety of mathematical and business analytic applications.
Temple University offers one of the most distinguished Actuarial Science programs in North America. Located in the Department of Risk, Insurance, and Healthcare Management, the Actuarial Science program gives students the opportunity to develop a strong background in mathematics and statistics while being exposed to a wide range of business disciplines.
