BSc or BA (120 credit hour) Combined Honours in Actuarial Science and another subject

Students who wish to study Actuarial Science in conjunction with another subject may wish to pursue a Combined Honours degree program. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Computer Science, or the College of Sustainability. Actuarial Science may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of honours credits), or the secondary subject.

Students planning to enroll in a Combined Honours program should consult with academic advisors from both programs early in their studies. Students must have their program of study approved by Academic Advisors in both subject areas.  Students must complete an Honours Qualifying Examination in one of the two subject areas, a requirement normally completed in the primary subject area.  For Actuarial Science, this requirement is satisfied through ACSC 4950.03/STAT 4950.03.
