Research

Jonathan Horowitz studies the effect of educational institutions 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.
