Students who enter the field of Vampirism will learn the history and culture of these creatures of the night. They will learn the art of shapeshifting and charms... and no, there is no glitter involved.
Vampires have various skills. And while humans are not vampires, students studying vampirism may find that they can pick up some of the tricks of the trade -- from shapeshifting, movement and manipulation of the shadows, and the summoning of familiars, these are all things that first year students can begin taking classes in.
Eastern vampires, while of a different sort, may also be an area of study.
