Dual BS-Mathematics/Master of Actuarial Science

Five-year Program

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Risk Management and Insurance in the Robinson College of Business jointly offer a dual degree program that links the BS in Mathematics and the Master of Actuarial Science. The program is designed to take five years. In general, at the end of the fourth year, a student will receive a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a concentration in Actuarial Science; at the end of the fifth year, the student will receive a Master of Actuarial Science. The undergraduate portion meets the requirements of a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics even if a student does not proceed with the graduate part of the program.

Admission Requirements

The BS-Mathematics/Master of Actuarial Science (BS-Math/MAS) option will in general be available to BS-Math undergraduates who have completed at least 30 hours of academic credit at Georgia State University (excluding AP or transfer credits) and who have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 at Georgia State. Students may apply for the dual degree opportunity at any time after completing 30 hours but prior to completing 90 hours of undergraduate coursework.
