I wanted to major in actuarial science but I think I may just major in Risk Management Insurance. This is my last semester at my CC and I will be transferring for this upcoming Fall semester. I applied to all my schools with an intended major of actuarial science as I want to pursue actuarial work. However, to become an actuary you have to pass the exams. I believe there are 9-10 exams of which you need to pass in order to officially have the title of an "Actuary" Anyone can correct me if I am wrong. However, to my knowledge, you can pass the first two exams and get an entry level job as an actuarial assistant while studying for the following exams. Hope this helps.
