The highest degree that can be obtained in Freemasonry is the Master Mason Degree OR THE 3RD Degree. It is used interchangeably with the title **Masonic third degree** because they mean the same thing¹. This Masonic third degree can only be offered by Masonic lodges and cannot be taken as a form of free or paid course online¹. However, it is important to note that there are other degrees in Freemasonry such as Entered Apprentice and Fellow Craft⁴. The Master Mason Degree is the degree needed to take part in masonic work, for instance chairing a lodge meeting.
