Applied and Computational Mathematics, Actuarial Science Emphasis, BS
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics ACM provides students with a new reason to major in mathematical sciences by emphasizing applied mathematics and mathematical modeling. Students will learn to apply mathematics to real world problems arising in various settings, as they master new mathematical techniques. ACM students will have the option to specialize in a desired field through emphases in Actuarial Science, Data Analytics, or Scientific Computing. The Actuarial Science emphasis will provide an interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with programs in Mathematics, Business, Economics, and Finance. Students will prepare for Actuarial Exams P/1 and FM/2, and develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of job opportunities such as mathematicians, actuaries, operations research analysts, and statisticians. More information is available at Be an Actuary website.
Professional Licensure/Certification (PLC) Requirements
The curriculum for programs at Utah Tech University leading to professional licensure are designed to prepare students for Utah licensure and certification requirements. Admission into programs for professions requiring licensure and certification does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or certificate. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the University, and licensure and certification requirements can change at any time.
Licensure boards in each state establish requirements for licensure and certification for their respective state. States vary by which professions are required to be licensed and how licensure functions, and such requirements may change at any time. The terms related to licensure and certification, among others, also vary by state as well.
Students and prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact the state licensure entity in the state where they intend to work to review all licensure and certification requirements imposed by the student’s state(s) of choice. The University cannot provide verification of a student’s ability to meet licensure or certification requirements unrelated to its educational programming. Some states require individuals to complete additional requirements that are unrelated to educational prerequisites. For more information, visit the State Authorization and Professional Licensure web page and select the program, or speak to the director of the program.
Utah Tech University shall not be held liable if a student is unable to qualify for licensure or certification in any jurisdiction.
