what has been learned from primary sources and enlists a second skill set. Most times this training occurs in college, but independent training isn’t unheard of. Higher levels of enchanting, imbuing, spellweaving, spellcloth/spellthread, rune forging (blacksmith), and spell composition are all examples of these secondary skills.

Specialization can be taken into a broader form that does not involve a creation of spellwork, but rather, a transition to another series of skills – a magical subset. Mancy abilities usually fall under this heading (ex.: Metal Adept to Technomancer). The original skill is not lost, only improved and specialized with a greater and/or different scaffolding of expertise.
