The actuarial science certificate program is designed to prepare students for a career as an actuary. https://www.soa.org/future-actuaries/career-paths/. Actuaries apply mathematical models to measure and manage risk. They work for and with organizations with a financial focus, such as insurance companies, banks, investment firms, government agencies, and accounting and consulting firms. The program combines coursework in mathematics, probability, statistics, risk management, economics, and finance.

Students must be degree-seeking undergraduates at the University of Georgia and must be able to simultaneously satisfy the requirements of the Actuarial Science Certificate Program while completing their degree requirements. If courses listed below are used to satisfy degree requirements, they may also be used to satisfy certificate requirements. Students must take a minimum of 21 hours. A minimum grade of C (2.00) is required in the three core courses making up Part I and the two course sequences making up Part II.

- MATH 2250: Calculus I for Science and Engineering
- MATH 2260: Calculus II for Science and Engineering

A minimum grade of "C" (2.0) is required for the courses in Part I.

- RMIN 4000 Risk Management and Insurance
- RMIN 4100 The Theory of Interest*
- STAT 4510/6510 Mathematical Statistics I or MATH 4600/6600 Probability or RMIN 4200 Actuarial Probability Concepts*

A minimum grade of "C" (2.0) is required for the courses in Part II.

- Sequence 1:

- STAT 4520/6520 Mathematical Statistics II

- Sequence 4:
- ECON 4010 Intermediate Microeconomics
- ECON(MARK) 4750/6750 Introduction to Econometrics

- Sequence 5:
- RMIN 4800 Internship in Risk Management and Insurance (6 hours)
