Jonathan Horowitz is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology.
His research is about life transitions and events in young adulthood, education, and work. More specifically, Jonathan studies the effect of educational institutions and life course transitions on position in the labor market and communities, and the resulting effects on inequality and political participation. These topics include how schooling–especially higher education–affects the credentialing and sorting of graduates, provides a central location which draws students towards them, and is a social system for producing network ties.
