Actuarial Science Minor

Responding to an educational need in the local business environment, the Barney School officially launched the Actuarial Science Minor in the fall semester of 2009. That need was validated when 10 students immediately signed up for the program when the expectation was that 5 students would sign up. The students were drawn from all class levels; Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior and Senior.
