Brick, Block & Stonemasonry Technology


The Brick, Block and Stone Masonry program is an instructional curriculum that prepares you to lay brick, block, and/or stone. It includes instruction in laying out and/or spacing bonds; determining vertical and horizontal alignment of courses using gauges, plumb-bobs, and levels; and cutting, notching, and shaping blocks, bricks, and stone to construct or repair walls, partitions, arches, and fireplaces.

Our program will allow you to put your mark on a centuries-old trade, taking your place alongside other skilled individuals. Completion of the Brick, Block, and Stone Masonry program at Hinds Community College will prepare you to work with an established company or go into business yourself as a private contractor. If your career is just beginning, or you’ve got a foot in the door, and you’re hoping to advance, this is the first step you need to thrive.
