** Some of the Classes at Hogwarts operate this way, like herbology. It's basically just botany, but with magical plants. They seem never to study any non-magical skills. This is lampshaded by Hermione in the very first book, when she and Harry are confronted with Snape's obstacle, which is simply a logic puzzle requiring no magical skills to defeat. She comments that an ordinary wizard may have had serious problems solving it, because they "don't have an ounce of logic".

* ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' has HermeticMagic, justifying the trope. Theoretical magic requires many hours, if not days or years, of meticulous planning and calculations, much like real-life engineering, and wizard academy of Beloria works much like a real life university. Theoretical magic is studied like maths or biology and students must write a thesis to gain degree - for example, Veres' Baccalaureate paper is on magical origins of [[OurMonstersAreDifferent darklings]].
