Professional Master’s in Applied Mathematics (Actuarial Science)
The Professional Master’s in Applied Mathematics (Actuarial Science) program is intended primarily for students who would like to pursue an actuarial career. Upon completing the program, students will be able to:
 perform mathematical and/or statistical computations using appropriate technologies in the analysis of data;
 demonstrate mastery on actuarial modeling;
 demonstrate skills in generalization, critical analysis, problemsolving and synthesis; and
 exhibit the core set of knowledge in actuarial science needed in practice.
The program aims to give students practical advanced education needed by the industry and to foster closer partnership with industry in the form of actual problems incorporated into their course work. It also prepares the students in taking their actuarial professional exams, such as the Actuarial Society of the Philippines (ASP) exams and/or the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Exams.
The program has been recognized by the Society of Actuaries as a member of the Universities and Colleges with Actuarial Programs (UCAP) since 2020.

Admission into the Program
Applications for admission to the program are processed by the College of Science (more information here). Students can apply for admission during the 1st semester or 2nd semester.
Aside from the general requirements for admission set forth by the College of Science, applicants to the program must have taken and passed the following courses, or their equivalents:
 Math 40 Linear Algebra
 Math 150.1 Mathematical Statistics I
 Math 150.2 Mathematical Statistics II
 Math 162 Theory of Interest
 Math 164 Mathematics of Life Contingencies
 Math 171 Numerical Analysis
Applicants who have not taken these courses may still be admitted in the program provided they take them as noncredit courses
For more inquiries, please send an email to ddapr@math.upd.edu.ph.

Program Curriculum
Students admitted into the program must complete 34 units of course work, including a special project and a oneunit graduate seminar. The student must maintain a GWA of 2.0 or better in his/her graduate courses at the end of each academic year. Students should also pass the (written and oral) comprehensive examinations prior to graduation. The written examination covers Math 260, Math 261, Math 262, Math 268.1, Math 268.2 and a choice between Math 263 or Math 264. The oral examination is a seminar on a topic covering a recent development in the discipline which is administered once the written examination is passed.
