The Insurance Studies minor has been designed so students from many disciplines can complement their major and develop the skills necessary to enter this industry. The insurance industry offers career opportunities for graduates from a wide variety of majors and provides great employment opportunities. Some of the positions include accountants, adjustors, actuaries, agents, IT specialists, investigators, underwriters, nurses, sales and operations managers.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
