# Programs

The Department of Mathematics offers the following programs:

** Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Mathematics **

Actuaries analyze risks and helps companies make decisions to manage those risks in the most beneficial way. The B.S. in Actuarial Mathematics provides the analytical and communication skills that graduates need to become an actuary or work in actuarial-related fields such as insurance, pensions, banking, and other financial service organizations.

NOTE: Students in both the Applied Mathematics and Statistics and Actuarial Mathematics majors take the same core courses during their first two years at Bryant, so they have the flexibility to switch from one program to the other in their junior year.
