Certificate in Introductory Actuarial Science
Requirements (50 units)
Certificates may be earned by regularly matriculated or extended learning students and denote successful completion of a prescribed program of study designed to:
- impart specified professional/vocational/career competencies; or
- produce mastery of the content of a sub-field of an academic major (discipline); or
- provide exposure to the range of materials in a traditional or emerging interdisciplinary field.
Certain certificate programs contain 600-level courses as requirements and/or electives. These 600-level courses may not be taken by undergraduate students. Candidates must receive two-thirds of their certificate-applicable credit from the university. The transferring of credit or the substitution of courses may occur only after application to the appropriate campus authority.
This program is designed to prepare students for the preliminary examinations given by the Society of Actuaries. Completion of those exams is normally considered the prerequisite for internships and entry-level positions in the field of actuarial science.
