Mathematics Major with Actuarial Emphasis

The mathematics major with actuarial emphasis at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point requies students to specialize in mathematical areas that have particular value to actuarial science. This program features a strong concentration of mathematics courses, including linear algebra and probability and statistics, along with other courses in applied mathematics, business and economics, and preparation courses for Society of Actuaries (SOA) examinations.

Explore Career Opportunities in Mathematics

A Bachelor of Science degree in mathematical sciences prepares students for jobs in actuarial science, statistics, logistics, mathematical modeling and education. UW-Stevens Point mathematics graduates enjoy careers in varied industries including insurance, banking, financial services, government, education, software publishing, consulting, e-commerce, health care and law.

Get Involved on Campus

Math Club promotes an appreciation for mathematics and emphasizes its breadth and applications. The club provides opportunities to interact with mathematics and mathematicians, both professional and amateur, through conference trips, guest speakers, competitions and social events.

The Center for Athletic Scheduling is a self-supporting, non-profit, student-run organization whose mission is to provide athletic schedules to intercollegiate athletic conferences across the country.

More opportunities can be found on the Stevens Point Involvement Network (SPIN).

Gain Experience Outside the Classroom

The National Science Foundation funds many research opportunities for undergraduates through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of 10 or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers.

Meet Your Mathematics Professors

The mathematics program at UW-Stevens Point is large enough to offer a full range of courses, yet small enough to give you a chance to work directly with professors. We are also noted for our work with technology. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has about 20 faculty members. They have interests in topology, geometry, actuarial mathematics, probability and statistics, mathematics education and operations research. Meet your professors!
