Social Work research aims to uplift society’s most vulnerable members by contributing knowledge designed to influence policy and practice decisions. Our faculty are conducting cutting edge research across the spectrum of social work issues. Our students gain the knowledge and skills needed to become independent researchers working in universities and other settings to contribute to knowledge that will form the basis of social work practice and policy.
Our approach to doctoral education is hands-on and supportive. We invite you to learn more about what doctoral education at Pitt can do for you to develop an impactful scholarly career.
