    You would study biology as an undergrad. Take astronomy as a minor. 

    Astrobiology is not taught at the undergrad level. Although many universities offer some classes in the subject. 

    You will find graduate program in astrobiology. 

    Actually one school does have an undergrad degree in astrobiology, Florida Tech.

    Astrobiologist will need a PhD - that's a graduate-level specialization. For undergrad, double major in biology and astronomy, or choose bio major & astronomy minor to prepare to specialize at the graduate level.

      Is it a good idea as an undergrad to major in astrobiology and minor is astronomy or the other way around?
