Statistics, Actuarial & Data Sciences

Prepare yourself to make a positive impact on modern society.

Big Data. Big Impact.

Central Michigan's statistics, actuarial and data sciences programs balance theory and practice in a learning environment that stimulates intellectual curiosity, develops technical quantitative knowledge and computational skills for problem-solving, promotes ethical behavior and cultivates effective communication skills.

Actuarial Science uses analytical and statistical processes to assess risk in various industries. It’s no easy job, but if you’re interested in math and statistics, becoming an actuarial science major may be a perfect fit.

Our actuarial science program offers you comprehensive training in thinking, reasoning and problem-solving — all of which strengthen your skills for a career in business, industry, government and more.

Through professional development, resources, developing contacts through student organizations and free tutoring at the Math Center, you will get the support and opportunities to be successful.
