Actuarial Science – Careers

What Can I Do With An Actuarial Science Degree?

Actuaries solve problems in insurance, finance and other related fields by applying practical and theoretical knowledge of mathematics and business techniques. In this increasingly 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.

In a comparison of 250 careers by The Jobs Rated Almanac – whose criteria included work environment, income, stress level, security, physical demands and employment opportunities – actuarial science was ranked as the “number one job” in the nation.
