About

Actuarial science is a special discipline for training students to apply mathematical skills and statistical techniques to study uncertain future events, especially those of concern to insurance and pension programs. The Actuarial Sciences concentration in the Professional Science major is a relatively new master’s program at Middle Tennessee State University. 

Overview

The Actuarial Sciences program at Middle Tennessee State University offers training so that students can make practical use of probability theory and statistical analysis for managing risks and solving problems. An internship takes the place of writing a thesis. Actuaries may work for insurance companies, consulting firms, government, employee benefit departments of large corporations, hospitals, banks and investment firms, or, more generally, in businesses that need to manage financial risk. 

A career as an actuary is better described as a "business" career with a mathematical basis rather than as a "technical" mathematical career. The occupation of actuary has been ranked for many years as one of the best jobs based on a variety of factors.

Careers

A master's degree from MTSU in Professional Science with a concentration in Actuarial Sciences can lead to opportunities for becoming an actuary, a career that is well paying and in high demand. Graduates are well positioned to fill the growing need for individuals with this highly specialized training in the financial services and consulting industries in addition to the traditional insurance and health care industries.
