Student Clubs

There are two student groups which all graduates students in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences belong to. These groups are: SIGMAS (Society in Graduate Mathematics and Statistics), and the GSA (Graduate Students' Association).


SIGMAS is the departmental graduate student organization for Mathematical and Statistical Sciences. SIGMAS promotes social and intellectual activities among mathematics and statistics graduate students; acts as a liason between graduate students and faculty/administration; and aims to further all three university goals of teaching, learning, and community outreach.

For more info on SIGMAS and SIGMAS events and activities visit the SIGMAS site.


The Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) is a student-run, not-for-profit organization, and the official representative body for all Masters and PhD students at the University of Alberta. The GSA offers many resources available to graduate students, including a health and dental plan program, an off-campus housing registry, and various awards and scholarships.
