The angle between two subspaces of dimensions p and q in a Euclidean space is considered by using exterior algebra. Some properties of angles are obtained. The relation between such a higher dimensional angle and the usual principal angles is also given. And finally, an application to Grassmann manifolds is briefly discussed.
