The Risk Management Major

Illinois Wesleyan is one of very few small universities in the country that offer a complete degree program in the field of risk management, which includes the study of insurance.

As a risk management major, you'll benefit from Bloomington's status as a national insurance center. The city hosts the State Farm corporate headquarters and the Country Companies Insurance & Financial Services home office, providing you with excellent internship and post-graduation employment opportunities.

You may learn from faculty members who hold one or both of the professional designations of Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) or Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU). You will also be able to meet and work with insurance professionals through local CLU and CPCU chapters.

Our risk management curriculum includes courses that teach you analytical principles and is capped by a class in which you confront current issues.

You may also take free CLU and CPCU classes, work toward a professional designation, and take the national proficiency examinations at Illinois Wesleyan.
