Solid content preparation: Students in the actuarial program at Fisher pursue a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics. As part of this major, students will be engaged in facets of statistics, computer programming, and economics as they prepare to begin the exam process and their careers. Many students also choose to pursue majors or minors in our School of Business particularly in finance, which gives them an extra edge in the world of insurance.
Liberal arts core: Being an actuary is more than just crunching numbers. As with any job, the ability to communicate effectively, write well, work in teams, and having a broad knowledge base about the applications of the products of one’s company (in insurance and other fields) can turn an academically qualified individual into a leader in the workforce. Fisher’s Core Curriculum is the educational experience common to all of our undergraduates. It is the manifestation of the College’s rich liberal arts tradition, and it was intentionally designed to provide you with the broad knowledge and diverse skills that employers require of today’s job applicants.
