About the Certificate:
The 14-credit graduate certificate in Actuarial Science prepares students for the U.S. and Canadian actuarial exams in probability and financial mathematics. The program also provides partial preparation for the actuarial exam in life contingencies. The certificate may be particularly useful for students in the Master of Science in International Economics and Finance program who, by choosing MATH 541 as an elective, can complete the program requirements by completing only 5 additional credits. The certificate program is also open to degree-seeking and non-degree graduate students meeting the admisstion requirements.
Admission to this program requires two calculus courses (equivalent to MATH 131 and MATH 132), an introductory statistics course (equivalent to MATH 240), and a financial accounting course. Applicants must also meet the general requirements for admission to the Graduate School and/or be active students in the Graduate School at Valparaiso University.
