Combinations to consider:

Bachelor of Science

Double major or combined honours: As part of a double major or combined honours program, Actuarial Science can be combined with any other Faculty of Arts or Science major or honours subjects. If it is combined with an Arts subject, a larger number of credits must be taken in Actuarial Science.

Minors: There are also a number of minor programs that can be combined with Actuarial Science through the Bachelor of Science program. These are: Business, Canadian Studies, Community Design, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Film Studies, Food Science, Journalism Studies, Law and Society, and Management.

Bachelor of Engineering

Bachelor of Science students can complete a Bachelor of Engineering degree concurrently with their science program. Students in this program complete the equivalent of a three-year Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Science and a Bachelor of Engineering in a period of five to six calendar years, depending on whether or not a co-op program is selected for Engineering.

Bachelor of Arts

In the Bachelor of Arts program, Actuarial Science can be combined with most of the Arts or Science major or honours subjects.
