The online career web site Zippia recently named Framingham State University one of the top 10 colleges in Massachusetts for sociology majors, based on career results, school performance, and emphasis on the major.

Framingham State University placed 8th overall in the ranking. According to the rankings, the web site examined data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) as well as the College Scorecard to understand what Sociology Departments offer the best career opportunities.

“When it comes to identifying the best Sociology schools we wanted to approach the ranking like a Sociology major would, by looking at data on how schools perform and comparing them to one another,” the website states. “It's hard to argue with a selective school that features Sociology and produces strong earning potential for your career.”
