Description

This course is designed to allow students to explore the insurance mechanism as a means for replacing uncertainty with certainty. We will explore how insurance affects the lives of students (automobile insurance, social security, health insurance, theft insurance) as well as the lives of our family members (retirements, life insurance, group insurance). While the mathematical models are important, an ability to articulate why the insurance options exist and how they satisfy the consumer’s needs are equally important.

This course is approved to fulfill the LSA Upper-Level Writing Requirement.
