Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with an Actuarial Concentration

This is the more demanding of the two undergraduate majors offered in the Department of Mathematics. This degree is appropriate for students planning to go on to graduate school in mathematics and related fields, and for anyone who wants a more challenging mathematical experience at TCU.

Departmental Requirements

The student must take at least 46 semester hours of mathematics. The required core mathematics courses are:

Students pursuing a BS degree in mathematics with an actuarial concentration have a choice of two tracks.

Track 1

The student also must take an additional three hours of mathematics courses at or above the 30000 level.

Track 2

The student also must take an additional six hours of mathematics course at or above the 30000 level.

In addition, students in Track 1 or Track 2 are required to take one of the following programming courses:

In addition, the student is required to take two of the following:

The following additional courses outside the Department of Mathematics are also required:

All actuarial students need to work closely with an adviser to plan course schedules.

Credit will not be granted for both MATH 10283 and MATH 10524.

Students should consult our helpful advising tips before planning their schedule.

Students planning to do graduate work in mathematics are strongly recommended to work closely with an adviser to plan their upper-division electives.

Students must earn a grade of C- or better in each mathematics course for that course to count toward a mathematics degree. Students must also have a 2.0 average or better in their mathematics courses in order to graduate with a degree in mathematics.

University and College Requirements

Students pursuing a program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree must complete a minimum of 124 semester hours, 42 of which must be advanced (30000 level or above) from TCU. In addition, students must complete the TCU Core Curriculum.
