Actuarial Science Major


The University of Connecticut’s actuarial program is a vibrant program with over 450 undergraduate and over 45 graduate students majoring in Actuarial Science. It is one of the few Actuarial Science programs of its kind in the New England. This means that all students from New England can attend UConn for considerably less than out-of-state tuition rates. More information can be found on the New England Board of Education website. An actuary is a person who uses training in mathematics and business to solve problems involving risk. Actuarial work is a challenging and rewarding way to use an aptitude for mathematics combined with an ability to work with people.
