Minors

Statistics Minor

Statistical methods are used in a wide variety of administrative, social, biological, and
physical sciences. Employers and members of graduate admissions committees
understand the importance of a background in statistics. Earning a Minor in Statistics can
give you an important edge in your career as you complete your undergraduate studies.

Actuarial Science Minor

This minor is designed to satisfy the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Validation by Educational Equivalence requirements in the areas of Economics, Corporate Finance and Applied Statistics and prepare students for SOA Exam P, Exam FM and Exam MFE. It also will prepare them to take the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) Exam 1, Exam 2, and Exam 3F. Students who complete this minor will have completed the requirements for a Statistics minor, and should also apply for that minor prior to graduation. Alternatively, the minor will satisfy many requirements in the Statistics B.S. degree, so students may want to consider the Statistics B.S. with the Actuarial Science minor.
