** 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]].

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', although the world of Endora is magic to us, with things like [[SpontaneousWeaponCreation innate magical swords]] you can [[SummonToHand summon]], a [[PowerCrystal crystal]] that hangs in a sky and functions as a sun, and a magical ancient transporting device that moves you between the [[HollowWorld inside]] and the surface of Earth, to the multiple [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist Omnidisciplinary Scientists]] in the series, it's totally scientific, they just need to research more. They're working on it!

* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}},'' two of the three original characters, Ray and Egon, are legitimate paranormal researchers that channel their knowledge into the business of "paranormal investigations and eliminations." It's not clear what Peter contributes to the research, if anything, though he's stated to have a [=PhD=] in parapsychology, and he was the one that came up with the idea of making it into a business after the guys got kicked out of Columbia University.
