Actuarial Science Degree Helps Meet Pressing Need
Responding to a vacuum of career professionals who analyze risk for insurance, finance and investment companies, the Department of Mathematical Sciencescreated a new bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved the department’s proposal, allowing the degree program to accept students in fall 2009. The new program is expected to boost UT Dallas’ existing relationship with local insurance companies and large actuarial firms.
