The curriculum leading to a degree in mathematics with an actuarial emphasis is designed to prepare the student for a career as an applied mathematician in the actuarial field. The validation by educational experiences (VEE) of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) are met by courses in economics, applied statistics, and corporate finance. Individuals may apply for the VEE credit after completion of the required coursework (with a minimum grade of B in each course), and after passing two SOA/CAS actuarial exams. MATH 438  will provide the foundation for Exam P/1 and MATH 375  will provide the foundation for Exam FM/2.
