College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: Statistics
Concentration: Actuarial Science
Effective Term: Fall 2019
The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses in the right-hand column are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

Actuaries assemble and analyze data to estimate the probability and likely cost of an event such as death, sickness, injury, disability, or loss of property. Actuaries also address financial questions, including those involving the level of pension contributions required to produce a certain retirement income level and the way in which a company should invest resources to maximize return on investments in light of potential risk. The BS in Statistics with a concentration in Actuarial Science prepares graduates for such a career. 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. A career in actuarial science is one of the best options that a student with talents and interests in statistics and mathematics can pursue. The job market has growing demand for actuaries, and high-paying entry jobs are available in the insurance, consulting, and financial services industries. Visit the Department of Mathematics and Statistics webpage for additional information.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared COAS major should visit the College of Arts and Sciences Career Success Center.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.

  • Visit the university catalog for a list of General Education requirements. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. Math selection for First Time in College (FTIC) students is contingent upon Math Placement exam results, the student’s major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).

  • Students requiring preparation for MAC 2311 Calculus I should take MAC 1147 Precalculus. Students requiring preparation for CHM 2045/2045L General Chemistry I with Lab should take CHM 1025/1025L Introduction to Chemistry with Lab. MAC 1105 College Algebra or MAC equivalent is an enforced prerequisite for CHM 2045/2045L. Students requiring preparation for PHY 2053/2053L Algebra-Based Physics should take PHY 1020 Introduction to Physics.

  • STA4322 Statistical Theory is the most challenging course in the Statistics major and should be taken in the senior year. Successful completion of STA4322 Statistical Theory is required prior to STA4945 Statistics Capstone.

  • Actuarial Science students are required to complete 12 semester hours of Major Electives. Students should take two of the Major Electives in Statistics (STA prefix) whenever they are offered. See the university catalog, or personalized Degree Evaluation for a list of approved Major Electives. Consult an academic advisor or Math & Statistics Department chairperson regarding approval of additional Major Elective options.

  • A minor is required for this degree. Actuarial Science students must select a minor from among biology, physics, computer science, mathematics, chemistry, economics or business. Statistics majors selecting a Minor in Math must visit the university catalog for variations within this Minor. Students must consult the Math & Statistics Department chairperson to select a different minor. Minors are generally completed during the last 60 hrs of your program. Your minor may require prerequisites, so choosing a minor early is beneficial. See your academic advisor to declare a minor. Double majors are exempt from a minor. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.

  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Prior to graduation from a Florida state university, students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2020 or POS 2041) or by achieving a passing score on an assessment. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree. Students may need to complete Free Elective credit at the upper level (3000/4000) to satisfy the minimum 48 semester hours of upper level hours for graduation.
