Actuarial Science at BGSU
Bachelor of Science in Mathematics/Actuarial Science Specialization
Graduate study in actuarial science
Typically, graduate students who are planning on actuarial careers
enroll in our MSAS (Master of Science in Applied Statistics) program.
It is a jointly sponsored program by the Department of Mathematics and
Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of
Applied Statistics and Operations Research in the College of Business.
Information about the MSAS program at BGSU.
The cognate courses that would be relevant for actuarial science are
MATH 5250 (Theory of Interest), MATH 5260-5270 (Actuarial Mathematics
I and II, life contingencies). These courses cover the SOA/CAS exam
MLC/3L, respectively. The required courses MATH
5410-5420 and MATH 6410-6420 cover more than enough
Exam P/1 and also much of the statistics portion of
One can satisfy the
VEE in applied statistics by taking STAT 5020+ STAT 5160.
Plans are underway to add a two semester sequence at the 5000 level to cover
Exam C/4. Another course sometimes offered in summer is financial economics,
which covers Exam MFE/3F; our graduate summer courses are listed under
MATH 6820 (special topics) with course title varying by section.
