The Department of History at the University of Toronto offers a broadly diversified program of graduate studies leading to the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Instruction is offered in all major areas of historical scholarship by a graduate faculty of approximately seventy members. Courses are offered in the history of Canada; the United States; Medieval, Early Modern and Modern Europe and Britain; Eastern Europe; Russia; Latin America; Africa; South Asia; East Asia; Southeast Asia; International Relations; the History of Medicine; and Women's History.

The University of Toronto also offers rich resources outside the department to support the study of history. The Robarts Research Library in the Humanities and Social Sciences, unrivalled in Canada and among the leading university libraries in North America, provides a foundation for a wide range of study. Specialized collections are located elsewhere in the university including in a number of centres and research institutes. The Centre for Medieval Studies and the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies have particularly strong resources for European and British medieval history. The Munk School of Global Affairs; the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology; the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies; the Institute for Urban and Community Studies; as well as the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies afford additional opportunities for interdepartmental work. The department participates in a number of interdisciplinary collaborative programs.
