UVM’s Actuarial Science Certificate is for students with strong math skills and an undergraduate degree who want to pass the Actuarial Science certification exams and work as an actuary. Courses are also for professionals with strong quantitative backgrounds, college degrees, and an interest in this field.

Courses are online or on campus, with classes specifically designed to prepare you for the Actuarial Science exams.

Students often begin working as actuaries after passing the initial one or two exams. Companies often pay for employees’ remaining exams or offer salary increases for each exam passed.

Traditionally, actuaries worked in insurance. Now they’re working in healthcare, consulting, business, and government. Visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ website for employment, salary, and certification information.
