Fox Mulder attended Oxford University from 1983 until 1986. (TXF: "Pilot", "Unusual Suspects") While there, he wrote a monograph on serial killers and the occult. (TXF: "Pilot") He also watched a documentary at the university about an insane asylum. In one section of the programme, a patient named Creighton Jones claimed to have been abducted by "fire demons". (TXF: "Our Town") Mulder graduated summa cum laude, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. (TXF: "Dreamland II") Those who later learned that Mulder had studied at Oxford University included Dana Scully, Scott Blevins, Robert Patrick Modell, the Cigarette-Smoking Man, Melvin Frohike, Morris Fletcher, John Doggett and Josef Kobold. (TXF: "Pilot", "Pusher", "Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man", "Unusual Suspects", "Dreamland II", "Patience", "Daemonicus")
- In "Little Green Men", Mulder mentions taking music appreciation with Professor Ganz, where he learned that the famous composer Johann Sebastian Bach had a genius for polyphony. Mulder probably studied this course at college, but there is not adequate evidence to prove this theory.
Among those who did not attend Oxford University is John Doggett. (TXF: "Patience") Lauren Padilla was offered a faculty appointment at Oxford University in 1996 but she did not take it. (MM: "Force Majeure")
