Property & Casualty Resource Library

The Casualty Actuarial Society has developed a Property and Casualty Resource Library, created specifically for professors who teach actuarial science and related courses and are a member of Academic Central.

The library’s purpose is to house materials that a professor can use to develop or enhance a course on property and casualty actuarial techniques at the university level. The materials can also be used to incorporate property and casualty concepts into a broader course. The library is organized around a set of three sample syllabi and a menu of supporting resources.

Members of Academic Central may access the library.

CAS Sample Syllabi

The CAS has developed three course syllabi that each span one semester and cover introductory property and casualty actuarial topics. The syllabi are available to support in the development of a new university course or as a reference to enhance an existing course.

Articles and Texts

The articles and texts referenced in the sample syllabi can be easily accessed and downloaded according to the specific course topic: ratemaking or reserving.

CAS Resources

The Casualty Actuarial Society resources include a series of property and casualty case studies designed for use in the classroom, and information on CAS Exam learning objectives.

Industry Resources

There are a number of industry resources including data sources, industry articles and webpages that you may want to incorporate into your property and casualty course.

The CAS Property and Casualty Resource Library is intended to be dynamic. Therefore, we welcome members of the CAS Academic Central Community to contribute to the enhancement and expansion of the library. If you'd like to submit resources to be considered for inclusion, for example: syllabi, course materials, and articles, or have questions about accessing the library, contact CAS University Engagement Manager, Tamar Gertner at
