University Majors


University of California, Santa Barbara
Actuarial Science B.S.

The Statistics Department at UCSB has an exceptional Actuarial Program, the only one of its kind in California and only one of two on the entire USA West Coast. Actuaries have been called "risk architects". They specialize in the evaluation of risk and are a vital part of the insurance and financial industries. Some of the fields where actuaries work include pension and life insurance, casualty (property) insurance, and healthcare consulting. Using their broad knowledge of statistics, mathematics and finance, actuaries help design insurance policies, pension plans, and other financial strategies in a manner which will help ensure that the plans are maintained on a sound financial basis and risks are minimized.
