Saint Joseph's offers an undergraduate major and a minor in Risk Management and Insurance.
Through the program, students gain a thorough understanding of how insurance companies make pricing, underwriting, investment, and financing decisions. Students will also become familiar with the risks facing financial institutions, corporations, and individuals, and will learn how to measure and manage these risks.
In July 2017, James and Frances Maguire bestowed a $50 million gift on Saint Joseph’s University, a portion of which will establish multiple endowed funds in support of Saint Joseph's nationally ranked risk management and insurance program, providing critical support for faculty, scholarship opportunities for students and professional development opportunities for both.
