The University of Connecticut Actuarial Program in the Department of
Mathematics began in 1976 with the creation of two new courses - Theory of
Interest and Life Contingencies. The department also began offering the
professional actuarial exams at that time. From the very first, the program
grew rapidly. In the spring of 1979, the first majors in Mathematics/Actuarial
Science were graduated. In 1984 we added a Concentration in Actuarial
Science at the Master's level. As of 2011, we have awarded 6 Doctoral
degrees in Mathematics with a thesis topic in Actuarial Science.
