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.
