Taking an English Lit module?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I'm studying a combined honours course, majoring in Criminology and minoring in Psychology. As part of the criminology course, a module is offered in 'Crime Fiction' - run by the English department. I've read through handbooks and done some research into the module and I really like the look of it. However, I'm worried as I haven't taken English Lit since GCSE, and don't have any experience with it past that. I really want to take the module, but I'm worried about it dragging my overall average for the year and for my degree (my uni only counts 2nd & 3rd year) down, if I'm not good at English Lit at uni level. Should I take the module, or try and find one I would be better at?
From what I can see online there are no requirements, but I'm s torn on doing it. I think I'd love it, but I'm worried I'll be awful at it as well! There's a drop period, so I think I'll choose the module, see how I like it then change if I think I'm not going to do well
