Pursuing the Study of Mathematics & Its Possibilities

With courses in mathematics, actuarial mathematics, math education, math in data science, and math for social interactions, we are ready to provide you with a rigorous degree while providing you with the support you need to succeed. Serving students concentrating in mathematics and those of other departments, we strive to continuously improve our teaching. We also work to further mathematics in the University of Michigan-Flint service region and are active members in the UM-Flint community.

Professional mathematicians go by many job titles, most of which don’t have “mathematician” in the title — analysts, consultants, statisticians, researchers, industrial scientists, etc. A degree in mathematics prepares students for a lifetime of occupational success by applying their deep reasoning skill, quantitative literacy, and scientific fluency in any of a vast slew of careers.

Bachelor’s Degrees

Actuarial Mathematics Catalog Description
The Actuarial Science Program at the University of Michigan-Flint is designated an “Undergraduate-Introductory” actuarial science program by the Society of Actuaries. It is designed for the student who wishes to pursue a career as an actuary, a career that requires strong mathematical skills as well as training in business-related areas. Actuaries work for insurance companies, financial planning agencies, governmental agencies, and other organizations to assist them in planning for the future using statistical and other mathematical techniques. Actuaries advance in their careers by passing examinations offered by the two American actuarial societies, the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society. The courses required for this degree cover much of the material on the first two examinations of these two organizations. It is often possible for students to take an examination prior to graduation.
