Mission Statement

M.C.A.S. is a non-accredited, non-degree institution.

The Masonic College of Arts Sciences is an online institution of higher education in the liberal arts governed by the highest standards of intellectual pursuit and creativity. Based on the principles of the Masonic Art, it is dedicated to the Perfection of Humanity through a belief that education can have a transformative effect on an individual who will ultimately carry that passion into the world.

The hallmark of a MCAS education is to produce an enlightened experience that is intellectually, socially, and personally transformative. Through merging Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science in the study of philosophy and the liberal arts, MCAS students will be exposed to new ideas, new ways of understanding, and new ways of knowing, not currently taught in traditional education venues.

MCAS seeks to foster:

  • Intellectual curiosity and freedom

  • Transformed habits of mind

  • Expansions of knowledge and higher awareness

  • Contemplation of the human experience

  • Diversity and inclusiveness

  • Innovation

  • Collaborative work

  • Social responsibility

  • Integrity and ethical behavior

  • Technological advancement
