This study outlines that in the last few centuries, education has become more and more available to people and largely thanks to the invention of the printing press and other means of spreading written material, which has been the most outstanding vessel for knowledge literacy. Thus, it has increased, and when 100 years ago we may have said that a person is well educated simply because they knew how to read and write, today those are mere basics in education, and very many people with literacy skills, yet they do not qualify as educated. Even knowledge by itself does not suffice for one to be educated, “Familiarity with a list of words, names, books, and ideas is a uniquely poor way to judge who is well-educated”. Being educated today means that one needs to have not only knowledge, but also the professional, social, and ethical skills that come with it, as well as experience in dealing with people.From this paper it is clear that many art colleges teach skills, which are not particularly specific to any job. For example, a student from the faculty of Education can use the same degree to apply and probably get a job, as a customer relations manager in a firm yet there are people who go to school to study the latter. The skills learnt in Arts College are versatile and can be applied in a variety of fields. However, some of the existing professions cannot be practiced by anyone who is not qualified and certified for them.
