D&D 5e skills
Question for the group... D&D 5e. Skills. I know the Proficiency bonus goes up as you level up/advance... but is there a process to gain NEW skill proficiencies?

Taking the Skilled Feat lets you gain proficiency in any combination of three skills or tools of your choice.

Thank you!

So normally you don't learn more skills, you just get better at the skills you know... unless you take the Skilled Feat?

Multiclassing can do it.
There's a few class features that grant skill proficiencies, too.

In addition, the DMG includes optional rules for spending downtime between adventures. One of those options includes spending time and money with an instructor to gain a skill proficiency.

If the DM sets it up being part of an organization can gain you a skill.. relative to your current slot [work requirements]
