If you're looking for a challenging field that's well rewarded, SEMO's actuarial science program has the size, cost, and credentials to prepare you to get there.

Actuarial science is about measurement, evaluation, and management of risks, like using data to make predictions. SEMO has a few predictions of our own. We predict 100 percent of you will pass all three exams necessary to become an actuary. How do we know that? Because 100 percent of our students do. Here’s another prediction: as one of only four public universities in the state recognized by the Society of Actuaries and with tuition lower than the national average, SEMO will be a smart investment in your future. The world runs on data, and those who can predict what comes next, secure their success.

  • You’ll graduate knowing the professional programs necessary to do the job because we’ll teach you Python, SAS, and R/R Studio.
  • Actuarial science is a challenging program, but our small class sizes mean you’ll have the personal support to succeed.
  • With an internship coordinator in our department, you won’t be going it alone to find real-world experiences.
  • With the big data revolution and actuary jobs projected to grow 24 percent, the job outlook is good, plus you’ll be paid among the best of the best. (Annual salaries in Missouri are over $100k).
