Pursuing a minor in Actuarial Science, Statistics, or Statistical Methods prepares you for a range of careers such as:

  • consumer marketing
  • banking and finance
  • insurance
  • agribusiness
  • medical research

Small Classes & Individual Attention

No graduate teaching assistants here. Truman’s 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio means you’ll be working one-on-one with full-time professors. You’ll find your instructors are more available and experienced than many at larger institutions, and our intimate class sizes ensure you’ll get the one-on-one instruction you need to succeed.

Outside the classroom, join a lively community of learners, collaborating with students and faculty in research, consulting for Truman’s Center for Applied Statistics and Evaluation, or joining a student group like the Society of Actuaries.
