Undergraduate Certificates

Actuarial Studies

The Certificate in Actuarial Studies is designed to provide the education needed for entry level employment in the actuarial profession. Those who complete the certificate will satisfy some of the Validation by Educational Experience requirement of the Society of Actuaries and be prepared to take the first two actuarial examinations (P and FM).

Data Science

The undergraduate certificate in Data Science is a five-course (15 credit hour) program. It provides skills, both statistical and computational, and technologies for the growing and popular fields involving data science and analysis. A student pursuing this certificate can choose from one of two tracks, this computational track or the statistical track. Each track consists of three required courses (9 credit hours) and two additional elective courses (6 credit hours). A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required for admission.

A minimum of three courses must be taken from UMSL. Courses may be substituted with the permission of the certificate coordinator. For more information, contact the department chair or email mathstats@umsl.edu.
