Graduate Association

PHAS Department Graduate Association (PHAS DGA)

The PHAS Department Graduate Association (PHAS DGA) represents all graduate students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary. All graduate students are automatically members with the PHAS DGA acting as advocates on their behalf. We encourage students to be involved both professionally and socially within the department and we try to host many events and seminars to encourage intradepartmental interactions.

The Graduate Students' Association

The Graduate Students’ Association manages a number of events throughout the academic year, including self-defense training, social activities, and professional development activities. The Graduate Students’ Association also provides the health and dental coverage for graduate students. Reach the GSA at

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and My Grad Skills

Everything from networking skills, presentation skills, and classroom management training are offered through My Grad Skills, a program offered through the Faculty of Graduate Studies to supplement the professional education of graduate students beyond what they receive in their home faculties.
