Iowa State students can declare the major starting in fall 2019.
Actuarial science is the discipline that applies financial, mathematical, and statistical methods to assess risk in insurance, finance, and other industries and professions.
This new major at Iowa State University was created in partnership with the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics. Students majoring in this area will acquire the knowledge base and skills in finance, mathematics, and statistics needed to pass the five preliminary actuarial exams. Creating an actuarial science major within the Ivy College of Business enables students to gain the business knowledge and skills needed in the insurance industry.
