M3 Statistics and Actuarial Science Banner

We offer undergraduate degrees in Actuarial Science, Statistics, and Biostatistics.

Careers in fields relating to both Statistics and Actuarial Science are in high demand and are listed among the top jobs. Statisticians and actuaries need a broad range of skills. The underlying theory of statistics/actuarial science has a mathematical basis and an actuary/statistician must have strong mathematical ability. They also need excellent computing skills to deal with large data sets and the computer-intensive analysis methods that are now routinely applied. Actuaries/statisticians must also be expert communicators, able to help formulate questions and explain complex technical methods and results to their collaborators.
