Developing an Actuarial Track Utilizing Existing Resources
Rodgers, Kathy V.; Sarol, Yalçin
PRIMUS, v24 n9-10 p799-804 2014
Students earning a degree in mathematics often seek information on how to apply their mathematical knowledge. One option is to follow a curriculum with an actuarial emphasis designed to prepare students as an applied mathematician in the actuarial field. By developing only two new courses and utilizing existing courses for Validation by Educational Experiences credit, our university developed an actuarial track to accompany a major in mathematics. An actuarial path attracts additional students to the major in mathematics and is a program of study sustainable by smaller departments.
