Actuaries solve problems in insurance, finance and other related fields by applying practical and theoretical knowledge of mathematics and business techniques. In this increasingly more necessary field, you might help determine rates and premiums on insurance policies, or forecast future events that could affect insurance programs. Some actuaries work with consulting firms, giving advice to corporations about their insurance and pension programs. Others are employed by government agencies, corporations and universities. Most actuaries specialize in life and health insurance, property and liability insurance or pension plans.
