Miskatonic University
Our History

Founded in the mid-eighteenth century, Miskatonic University was established as a beacon of enlightenment during a period of global exploration and discovery. Named after the Miskatonic River which courses nearby, the University quickly gained prominence for its diverse curriculum and innovative approaches to education.

Our timeline is rich with groundbreaking moments. We were one of the first universities to establish a Department of Interdimensional Physics, reflecting our commitment to explore the boundaries of our reality.

Our Department of Occult Literature houses one of the world’s largest collections of arcane texts, offering our scholars insight into dimensions and entities beyond conventional understanding.

Our explorers and archaeologists have ventured to the ends of the Earth – from the peak of Mount Everest to the barren wastes of Antarctica. Our Pabodie expedition of 1930-31 brought back specimens of a previously unknown, ancient life-form from the Antarctic ice, broadening our understanding of life on Earth and challenging existing biological paradigms.
