# Applied Mathematical Sciences - BS, Actuarial Emphasis

Many advances in technology and business are achieved by people applying technical knowledge from statistics, computing science, finance, economics and mathematics. The curriculum in applied mathematical sciences provides study in all of these areas, with ample electives available to allow further in-depth study of any of these areas. In fact, there are six emphases in this curriculum: Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Actuarial Science, Economics, Biological Science and Scientific Computing. The Actuarial Science emphasis includes mathematical finance.

A student completing this program is prepared to enter employment with analytical and quantitative tools relevant to technological industries and/or modern financial markets. On the other hand, with the appropriate electives chosen, the student is prepared to enter quantitatively oriented graduate schools. All advising for this degree option is done through the Undergraduate Program Office in the Department of Mathematics.
