What I Love Most About DWU:
You can count on a great career in a
Become a more marketable asset to your field by pairing your mathematics work with a concentration in Actuarial Science.
Concentration in Actuarial Science
Actuaries are mathematics professionals who are in demand.
Predict the future – with math. Where there is risk, there is a place for an actuary.
- Use your experience in math and statistics to examine risks of particular situations and make decisions on insurance coverage, business expansion or government policy.
- You will use critical-thinking and problem-solving skills every day in the competitive world of actuarial science. We can guarantee you will be able to practice these skills in every class you take with us.
- You will learn to use these skills in leadership positions, whether among classmates or in your career.
Take classes like:
- Statistical Methods
- Linear Algebra and Differential Equations
- Introduction to Probability Theory
Demonstrate the skills you learn at DWU in a variety of industries like major insurance carriers, consulting firms or investment houses and banking.
It’s not just seat time. Take your math experiences out of the classroom and into the real world.
- Become a tutor. As you learn, reach students on and off campus. Opportunities for tutoring all ages abound with DWU's connections to the local school district.
- Attend conferences. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Regional Conference and Exposition has welcomed DWU students in the past. This event lets students present their work and learn from other professionals and students in the region.
- Join Math Club. Share your passion for statistics and problem solving with your classmates. Help create an award-winning float for homecoming or bake and sell pies for Pi Day to spread the love of our favorite number.
