The Indiana Wesleyan University Minor in Actuarial Science minor from the Division of Math and Computer Information Sciences prepares students to enter the actuarial profession. Specifically, the plan of study includes coursework preparing students for the first two actuarial exams and satisfying the Society of Actuaries' requirements for Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) in the areas of Applied Statistics, Managerial Finance, and Economics.
The Society of Actuaries describes an actuary as follows:
This Minor is intended for students taking a Mathematics Major or Mathematics Interdisciplinary Major, although students with other majors can include this minor by also taking the necessary mathematical prerequisites. The student will need at least 19 credit hours from the following courses. MAT-351 and MAT-363 prepare students for the first two actuarial exams, while the remaining courses satisfy various VEE requirements.
If you enjoy using your mathematical skills to solve challenging real-world problems, consider Actuarial Science as a profession, and consider a liberal arts education at Indiana Wesleyan University and a Minor in Actuarial Science as your preparation for a career as an actuary.
