Actuarial Sciences (BS)

Shown here are the general learning goals of the program broken down into specific student learning outcomes (SLOs). These SLOs represent what a student should be able to do as a result of successfully completing this program. Student performance on these outcomes are routinely assessed by program faculty as a way of informing programmatic improvement efforts.

Goal Outcome

1. Students will demonstrate the ability to communicate concepts and results of quantitative analyses effectively in a business environment, both orally and in writing.

  • 1.1 Student will communicate the results and solutions of mathematical, statistical, and actuarial problems in writing using everyday and mathematical language, whichever is applicable.

2. Students will learn theoretical knowledge, methodological knowledge, and practical skills in mathematics, probability, statistics, finance, business, and problem-solving necessary for the professional practice of actuarial science.

  • 2.1 Student will demonstrate the ability to use statistical methods to analyze and model time dependent data.
  • 2.2 Students will apply concepts of differential and integral calculus as related to probability and demonstrate the ability to apply probability distributions in actuarial applications.
  • 2.3 Students will apply the theory of interest to financial and actuarial problems.
