Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
"The actuarial science program provides students with the rigorous analytical training required to succeed in careers in risk management and insurance. A minor in actuarial science can help prepare students for the challenging examinations administered by the professional actuarial societies. Our students have demonstrated success rates on these examinations that are considerably higher than national averages."
