It would be good to have at least 1 or 2 essay subjects, as criminology is an essay subject - so history and English literature would both be great, as would RS, I'm sure.

My degree is in Criminology. There is a sociological element running throughout the course and a Psychology element/module in the final year.

I didn’t do any sciences, except social sciences - sociology, psychology, some element of philosophy in second year but no actual assignments on it. Criminal law in first year.

If you want try Law. Don't overwork yourself though as I do both English Lit and Psychology and even then the workload is a lot (I do business at my 3rd.) A lot of my friends do Sociology and they always seem to do loads of work. So if you really feel like you are capable (I'm not saying that you're not) do 4 but be cautious about it. I personally don't think it's necessary.

Only take a fourth if it won’t reduce your ability to do well at the others.

It’s better to have ABB than BBBC.
