Faculties and academic units

Our faculties and divisions provide a home to academic programs. The university is broken down even further into departments, colleges, and centres & institutes, which support an important part of the smaller learning community experience for our students.

U of T provides more than just degree programs. We are committed to providing access to education for anyone who wants to learn fundamentals and upgrade their skills.
