2016-2017 Catalog > Undergraduate Studies > Undergraduate Minors > Actuarial Science Minors
Coordinator: James Parson
An actuary is someone who uses knowledge of mathematics and finance to manage financial uncertainty. Actuaries work for insurance companies, for private corporations, for the government, and as consultants. Being an actuary is consistently ranked as one of the best jobs in America – where people are happiest and best-paid. The goal of this minor is to help prepare students to be an actuary.
Students pursuing the actuarial science minor usually major in a related field; students with majors other than the ones listed below should contact the coordinator to design an appropriate program.
Through an integration of the liberal arts and the professions, Hood College provides an education that empowers students to use their hearts, minds and hands to meet personal, professional and global challenges and to lead purposeful lives of responsibility, leadership, service and civic engagement.
