Hi, I've been sent an email about registering at Lancaster and I have to pick my first year modules. I'm studying criminology but all the optional modules are from other subjects like politics, languages and psychology. Is this right? I was under the impression that the optional modules would be linked closer to my subject.

Also I'm a bit confused about what the table of modules means. Some are on there own but others are in a square with 5 modules and the enrolment button covers all of them. Does that means that all 5 are classed as one module?

Any help would be appreciated

Hi @hope1279,

I would recommend that you get in contact with the criminology department, just to check, on their email here: [email protected].

In the first year, generally there is less choice of optional modules as it is rather focused on the Part 1 Minor System, where you can pick another subject or module from across the faculties. Perhaps the modules of politics, languages and psychology are recommended to you as part of this system? It appears there is only one optional module for criminology on the website, so I'd definitely ask the department for advice.

I will also pass on your query myself to get a specific response.

Thank you
Hi @hope1279,

The Criminology department have said this in response:

"For many Lancaster courses, including most of our Criminology courses, you have some core Criminology modules and (depending on what your major or joint major is) a choice of one or two modules from other complementary subjects. this will give you different perspectives on crime, offending and experiences of victimization. In the second year and beyond of your degree, you’ll specialise in aspects of Criminology but you’ll still have flexibility of optional modules.
Where the enrolment button covers all the modules this is because they all have to be taken."

I hope this helps!
