Master of Science in Actuarial Science

Our Master of Science in Actuarial Science curriculum provides exceptional career preparation to students seeking entry into the profession of actuarial science. The program is precisely constructed to enhance students' critical and analytical thinking, as well as equip them with the knowledge to pass professional examinations required to be a credentialed actuary.

Proximity to the world's financial center is one of the many unique advantages provided to students by the School of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science, located in Manhattan.



St. John's School of Risk Management is proud to be one of the Centers of Actuarial Excellence in the United States. The Center of Actuarial Excellence designation indicates that our faculty is actively engaged in cutting edge research, that our students are well prepared to enter the profession of actuarial science, and that the community of actuaries is actively engaged with St. John's University.

The Insurance Leader of the Year dinner is held every January. The dinner raises money for scholarships for the School of Risk Management. The ILOTY Fellowship is a source of money for a student interested in pursuing a master's of science in enterprise risk management or the master's of science in the management of risk.

One of the main resources that we're providing students through the Thrower Center here is our fall and spring career fairs. We have many students that get their jobs through our career fairs. We work very closely with all of our students in order to assist them in reaching their career success, through providing a variety of opportunities and coaching and specialized services, just for the students within the School of Risk Management and Insurance.
