Magical specializations are subsets of magical abilities. These practices may be limited to a single major or minor school of magic or may cross schools. However, their defining feature is they create a subset of spells or abilities within the practitioner's actual school of magic which are varied and useful enough that the practitioner focuses on it regardless of their actual type of magic. The spells and effects which support these specializations are available to any individual practicing that type of magic, however.

Recognized specializations of magic include Animation, Divination, Illusion, Necromancy, Oneiromancy.
