First year students will glean an introduction to various magical creatures. They can also choose to specialize in certain species. They will learn to how to take care of these animals, what they like, dislike, habits, their habitats, etc. They may take a familiars course as well, or perhaps methods to tame, or at least temporarily appease certain beasts. To properly work with certain animals, it may be necessary to take on practical courses that can allow you emulate or work with creatures.
