Knowledge (The Forces)
While there are many skills that pertain to each Force in turn, there is also the general study of the Forces. Those who study the Forces as a whole do not benefit from the more specific knowledge gained by studying a single Force, they do have an increased understanding of how the various Forces relate to each other.
