ACTUARIAL SCIENCES PROGRAMME


D.1. General Information about Program

Department of Actuarial Sciences, which is the first department in this field in Turkey, has been established on 20th June, 2000. Principle objective of the department is to educate modern and creative individuals by giving basic information about not only actuarial sciences, statistics, mathematics, insurance, computer sciences and finance but also sociology, psychology and philosophy.

Actuarial sciences deal with the financial effects of unpredictable events which influence the individuals' lives (birth, death, illness, accidents, disability, retirement) and the effects which influence individuals' property holdings (fire, earthquake, theft and fraud). Actuaries are educated in order to analyze the risk of occurrence, to estimate the probabilities and to form the security programs that relieve the financial effects of these events.

Actuary takes place in the ranking of top ten occupations of United States and Europe in terms of income, prestige and job satisfaction. The graduates of this department may work at insurance companies, public and private social security institutions, banks and investment firms. Graduates of this program may also take the international actuarial exams to get the authority to sign as an actuary.
