The OI has initiated Canada's first graduate program in Astrobiology.  In keeping with our basic philosophy on engaging in interdisciplinary research, our Collaborative Graduate Program in Astrobiology involves the collaboration of five "home" departments with the Origins Institute.   We offer the interdisciplinary grad courses, seminars and Astrobiology training while the departments prepare the graduate students with the deep techniques and skills in their fields that they bring to the table.  As a part of our program students participate in  our research Colloquia   and have  the opportunity to participate in international  Meetings   hosted by the OI.
