The Master Craftsman: Scottish Rite Ritual & History Course familiarizes students with the basic structure of the Scottish Rite as well as aspects of the rituals and symbols of the twenty-nine degrees (4°–32°) and honors of the Scottish Rite. Consisting of 6 lessons, it utilizes The Scottish Rite Ritual Monitor & Guide, third edition, by Arturo de Hoyos and A Bridge to Light, 4th edition, by Rex Hutchens as its textbooks.
Both Master Craftsman Symbolic Lodge and Master Craftsman Ritual & History are contained in the Master Craftsman Online College and Leadership Academy Course offerings.  There have been some small updates and changes, and the addition of a few pieces of multi-media content to enhance the learning activities.  However, the online College will also be offering an ever-expanding selection of new courses and mini courses designed fulfill the promise of More Light In Freemasonry.
If you have taken Master Craftsman Symbolic Lodge and/or Master Craftsman Ritual & History, you do not need to take those two courses again.  Though there are some small adjustments made to accommodate the online system, the learning material is unchanged.
The robust nature of the Master Craftsman Philosophy Course requires that, for the time being, it remains as a correspondence course.  However, we expect the course to be available in the Online College system by 2023. 
For your convenience, you can log in using your existing Scottish Rite Online portal credentials.  If you have never set up your portal credentials, visit members.scottishrite.org and follow the on-screen prompts.
