Future studies

Dal’s Actuarial Science degree is developed specifically to help prepare you for the Society of Actuaries (SOA) examination process. Many students even begin this process while completing their degree.

The SOA examinations set you on the path to become a professional actuary. Once you complete this process, your designation as an actuary will be recognized worldwide.

You may also wish to explore mathematics or statistics in more detail at the graduate level, preparing you for a potential career in academia as a university professor and researcher.

  • Master of Science (MSc) and PhD in Mathematics
  • MSc and PhD in Econometrics

If you’re interested in business, you may also wish to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA).
