If you're good at mathematics and interested in business, a career in actuarial science is a path to consider.
  • Actuaries analyze data and assess risk. They are most often associated with the insurance industry, but actuaries work in many kinds of businesses. The profession is consistently one of the most secure and highest-paying available, even during tough economic times.
  • Pacific offers the only actuarial science program in northern California. In it, you have the opportunity to develop the skills expected of entry-level actuaries, equipping you with the tools to help companies and businesses better anticipate and manage risk.
  • Our program also prepares you for the first five professional actuarial credentialing exams (Exam P, Exam FM, Exam IFM, Exam LTAM or Exam STAM).
