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?

Get in touch with the module coordinator and ask if there are any academic requirements. They'd be able to advise about the level of study and whether you'd be able to cope/do well.

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

Makes sense. Good luck!
