Actuarial Science


Analyze. Assess. Advise.

Actuaries use skills and tools from mathematics, statistics, and business to measure and manage risk, assisting companies in industries including banking, e-commerce, energy, insurance, and investments.

Actuarial science is a growing field: the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects demand for actuaries to grow 24% between 2020 and 2030, much faster than average.

Preparing Students to Succeed

La Salle’s actuarial science major prepares students for the profession, encouraging them to think logically, analyze data critically, formulate complex problems in a well-defined manner, and determine the best solutions to real-world problems.

Our program’s curriculum gives students a head start, preparing them to take two actuarial society exams while enrolled and to obtain actuarial society credit in all three Validation by Educational Experience areas.
