In addition, the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Social Work is one of a few schools to offer doctoral students the option to simultaneously obtain a certificate in Certificate in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies and a PhD in social work.

This certificate is based on a strong interdisciplinary program focusing on new scholarship concerning women and gender. The University of Pittsburgh Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program provides opportunities for students to explore the historical development, cultural variations, and changing representations of gender and sexuality as they organize identities, interactions, and institutions and intersect in complex ways with sex, race, class, ethnicity, ability, age, religion, and nation.
