  3. What you have suggested would make for a great combination degree.  But as somebody mentioned before, the schooling doesn't make you an actuary.  The professional exams do.  Combining the exams with coding ability will make you an interesting candidate for entry level actuarial positions.

  5. Both options are possible if you’re truly motivated. Thus, it takes a bigger profit in a long run. When you become a programmer you’ll identify and solve complex technology problems in business, medicine and other essential industries probably. There’s a thing none talks about while thinking of becoming a computer scientist – software product discovery phase. If to skip the phase, the software development project has more chances to fall through due to not found users’ needs, missed requirements and finally a wrong solution. It’s obvious for me.
