Actuarial Science Minor

College of Sciences
Department of Statistics,
Computer Center II, Room: 212


Dr. David Nickerson, david.nickerson@ucf.edu, 407-823-5528

This minor is designed to satisfy the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Validation by Educational Equivalence requirements in the areas of Economics, Corporate Finance and Applied Statistics and prepare students for SOA Exam P, Exam FM and Exam MFE. It also will prepare them to take the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) Exam 1, Exam 2, and Exam 3F. Students who complete this minor will have completed the requirements for a Statistics minor, and should also apply for that minor prior to graduation. Alternatively, the minor will satisfy many requirements in the Statistics B.S. degree, so students may want to consider the Statistics B.S. with the Actuarial Science minor.
