The Actuarial Science program at the University of Central Oklahoma is the only such program in the state of Oklahoma. The course of study was originally designed by Actuaries at American Fidelity Assurance Co. in Oklahoma City. The focus of the degree program is to give students a strong analytical background in the areas of mathematics and statistics as well as the actuarial specific topics such as theory of interest and mathematics of life contingencies.

Curriculum

What is an actuary? An actuary is a business professional who analyzes the financial consequences of risk. Actuaries use mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to study uncertain future events, especially those of concern to insurance and pension programs. Actuaries may work for insurance companies, consulting firms, government, employee benefits departments of large corporations, hospitals, banks and investment firms, or, more generally, in businesses that need to manage financial risk. A career as an actuary is better described as a "business" career with a mathematical basis than as a "technical" mathematical career. More general information about actuaries may be found at www.beanactuary.org.... [-]

The economic health of any organization relies on its ability to protect itself from fraud. With threats increasing, employers are looking to hire problem-solvers who are well-versed in fraud detection and prevention. This minor enhances your marketability in all industries by learning about this new and growing field of fraud.

Why Choose A Minor In Fraud?

Private and public organizations will lose money every year and employees may also lose jobs and/or benefits due to fraud. Because fraud affects the economic well-being and sustainability of our private and public sectors organizations need people versed in fraud in order to secure the economic assets from losses due to man-made or natural disasters. Organizations need people who can prevent employees or vendors or customers from stealing assets, engaging in corruption schemes, and from engaging in transactions that create conflicts of interest. Organizations also need employees skilled in recognizing corporate espionage, terrorism financing and information security breaches. This minor will be of great benefit to any majors including but not limited to: business majors, resort recreation and hospitality management majors, safety majors, sport management majors, criminology and criminal justice majors and cybersecurity computer majors....
