Courses in Risk Management and Insurance are not included in the field, but are relevant and are recommended electives for Actuarial Science students. Interested students should consult the Department or the Chair in Risk Management and Insurance in the Haskayne School of Business.
Actuarial Science courses, along with Statistics 421, 429, 505 and 507, cover significant portions of the course of study for the early Casualty Actuarial Society Examinations and Society of Actuaries Examinations/Courses. Students are advised to select additional courses in Economics, Finance, Risk Management and Insurance, and Statistics as electives in order to complete the course of study for these professional examinations, and also to prepare for the advanced Casualty Actuarial Society Examinations/Society of Actuaries Examinations/Courses. Students should speak with a Departmental advisor for guidance.
Students who wish to pursue possible credit towards the Society of Actuaries VEE Accounting and Finance requirements are recommended to take Accounting 217 and Finance 317, respectively. Such students must be in good standing and in the third or fourth year of the Actuarial Science program. Certain other prerequisites for these courses may be waived, but Economics 201 and 203 are essential for Finance 317. Students should contact an advisor in Haskayne for registration approval. (Note, although sufficiently high grades in Accounting 217 and Finance 317 should satisfy the Society of Actuaries' requirements, ultimately the Society of Actuaries will make this determination.
