Masters College of Martial Arts

 




In order to receive a degree diploma (Bachelor/Master/Doctorate) in Martial Arts, one must fulfill the  requirements assigned each degree level. Prior experience may be submitted, but all experience must contain a notarized document attesting to its legitimacy. Once these evidences are received a diploma may be issued.


* ALL DEGREES ISSUDED ARE CONSIDERED VOCATIONAL IN NATURE AND ARE NOT REGIONALLY ACCREDITED ACADEMIC DEGREES OR RECOGNIZED BY ANY EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY. CREDENTIALS ISSUED ARE DONE SO UPON THE RECOMMENDATION OF VOCATIONAL PEERS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED VALID WITHIN THE MARTIAL ARTS INDUSTRY WHICH WILL VARY FROM GROUP TO GROUP.



NOTE
: T
he Florida Department of Education -- Commission for Independent Education
, has definitively stated that the Masters College of Martial Arts is clearly "vocational" in nature and limits itself to the awarding of degrees specific to the martial arts community for prior accomplishments as well as identifying itself clearly as a religious organization and is not required to apply for a letter of exemption, nor does it fall under the Florida Department of Education's definition as a traditional school/college and therefore can operate free of interference with the current structure of the College.
