General Education (GE) Requirements


Students completing a degree in Actuarial Science have the option of completing either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS). This choice does not change the major program requirements. The difference between earning a BA or a BS lies within the General Education (GE) coursework a student must complete as a part of their undergraduate degree. Please see General Education Requirements (GE’s) for Bachelor of Arts GE requirements and Bachelor of Science GE requirements.

All Actuarial Science Majors

The following courses are required for all Actuarial Science majors. These courses can also be used to satisfy GE requirements:

  • Math 1151 Calculus I satisfies the Quantitative and Logical Skills - Mathematical and Logical Analysis requirement
  • Math 1152  Calculus II partially satisfies the Open Option requirement
  • Economics 2001 and Economics 2002 satisfies the Social Science requirement.

Degree Audit (DARs)

Students can use Buckeye Link to run a degree audit, which provides an evaluation of how all the courses they have completed are used to meet both general and major course requirements. Students can review Instructions to Run a Degree Audit (DARs) [pdf] here.
