So these are some Math subjects that Actuarial Science student will have to study:
1) Probability
2) Statistics
3) Mathematical Statistics
4) Algebra
5) Calculus
6) Linear Algebra
7) Differential Equation
8) Actuarial Maths

And yes, you also need to learn Finance subject:
1) Financial Accounting
2) Microeconomic
3) Macroeconomic
4) Financial Management
5) Investment and Portfolio Analysis
6) Econometric
7) Risk Management
8) Financial Risk Management

The hardcore subject:
1) Life Contingency

3) Insurance & Takaful
4) Survival Model & Ruin Theory
5) Stochastic Process

You also need to have some programming knowledge such as:
