How many degrees are there in Freemasonry?

Basic Freemasonry consists of three ‘Craft’ degrees (Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason) and the ‘Royal Arch’ degree. There are no short-cuts to getting these degrees, and all members must demonstrate their knowledge at each level before proceeding to the next.

In addition, there are many additional Masonic degrees and Orders, which further illustrate the principles stated in the Craft and Royal Arch degrees, but are not in any way superior to them.
