Actuaries use math to determine the financial effect that uncertain future events such as birth, death, retirement, fire, earthquake, accident, and sickness have on insurance and other benefit plans. They work for insurance companies, consulting firms, or the benefits departments of general businesses and government agencies.
Math + Economics
The B.S. Program II with a Minor in Economics, or the Interdepartmental Major in Mathematics and Economics, works especially well with preparation for a career as an actuary.
