So you’ve played the full extent of Skyrim and completed all the side quests, and polished up on your Skyrim knowledge. So what now? You can install a Skyrim mod that allows you to write a thesis on the game! That’s what you exactly do in the new Skyrim Scholarship Mod! Let’s get right into it!

So What’s up With the Skyrim Scholarship Mod?

The Skyrim mod Scholarship of Skyrim allows players to research and note down the knowledge of the Skyrim Universe. You become a scholar in the RPG researching the Elder Scrolls Dwemer, Nords, and Falmers to begin your journey on writing… a thesis!

If you’ve ever considered yourself an expert on the in-game lore of Skyrim and the Elder Scrolls, this mod expects you to write down the lore and specifics of the Skyrim Universe to do an in-game thesis and become a real-world scholar of all that is Skyrim.

You’ll have to research the ancient cultures and traditions of the world of Skyrim before noting them down, for which players will allow you to obtain exciting rewards, XP, and additional bonus stats upon completion.

The Skyrim Scholarship mod created by Zamio1 allows players to uncover the mysteries and lore of the beloved game that players might have otherwise looked over. Players can adopt various methods to collect information about the world of Skyrim.

They can look into preexisting books from the world, interact and talk to NPC scholars and gain their knowledge and ultimately head out into the open world of Skyrim to get some hands-on experience to enhance their understanding of the World of Skyrim.

Zamio1 has also released Patch notes along with updated news for the Scholarship of Skyrim 2.0 mod on his Reddit account. The update states that players will write a thesis on one of one of five levels that will grant scholars rewards and buffs depending upon their knowledge level and progress.

Currently, players can research around three cultures, but Zamio states that they want to include more cultures to look into over time. Players can look into the underground dwelling culture of the Dwemers, who spend their days excelling in engineering, underground infrastructure, architecture, and robotic craftsmanship.

Players can also research the ancient history of the Falmer, who were known to be prosperous and boasted an impressive empire before ultimately succumbing to their inevitable downfall.
Last but not least, players can also look into the culture of the Nords who inhabited ancient Skyrim before the modern era faded them out into history.

Among the future topics that Zamio is looking into are the Sword Singers, which consisted of a legendary group of Swordsmen from the lands of Yokuda located to the West of Tamil. Players will also get to research cultures and regions outside of Tamriel, too, and that’s not all. You’ll also get to look into the ancient history of Dragons too with future updates to the Skyrim Scholarship Mod!

Research can get pretty tough. You’ll have to start off at the Arcanaeum at the College of WinterHold, where you’ll have to read numerous books to develop a foundation for your knowledge of the world of Skyrim.

Finally, you can further your knowledge of the ancient civilizations by travelling into the depths and ruins of the Dwemers. What better way to learn than to see the ruins firsthand?
