An actuary is considered one of the best jobs in America that often flies under the radar. Some have said it’s the best job you never thought of. Demand for actuaries is high and it can pay six-figures a year — with no grad school required. What is required is a love of mathematics. Plus statistics, computer science, business and economics.
An actuary typically holds a position of great responsibility with insurance companies, consulting firms, investment banks, self-insurers, government regulators and government insurance programs. The Actuarial Science program at the University of Maine at Farmington is specifically designed to prepare you for a career as an actuary.
