### Mathematics and Statistics Department

### BS - Applied Mathematics, Concentration in Economics and Actuarial Science

This program is designed for students who want to become actuaries and for students who want a program that integrates business, economics, and mathematics. Actuaries are trained to analyze risk and are typically employed by insurance companies, banks, the government, and companies that handle retirement funds.

33 upper division units of mathematics are required for this degree. If upper division requirements are fulfilled using transferred lower division courses, then additional upper division math courses will need to be taken to obtain the required number of upper division units.

*University Graduation Requirements*

Students must complete all residency, curriculum, unit, and GPA requirements as outlined in the Graduation Requirements section of the Policies and Procedures.

*4-Year Program Roadmap*

Students may find a roadmap for this program here. Roadmaps should be used in consultation with the catalog and your advisor to identify additional requirements for completing the major (for example, course grade minimums). Associate Transfer Degrees (ADT) pathway roadmaps can be found here.

*Major-Specific Graduation Requirements*

All courses in the Preparation and Required in the Major must be completed with a grade of "C- or better", and the following Preparation for the Major course with a grade of "C or better": MATH 100W
