Astrobiology internship & Astrobiology degree plan

What is the currently accepted astrobiology degree plan? If there isn't one yet created; what should my current major and minor consist of? Is there an astrobiology internship developed for aspiring

A few universities are offering advanced degrees in astrobiology--or more accurately, they are providing an opportunity for a specialization in astrobiology while studying for an advanced degree in one of the more traditional disciplines. Four that you might want to look at are Arizona State University, University of California at Los Angeles, University of Colorado at Boulder, and University of Washington. At the undergraduate level there are also a few courses being offered, but a formal degree program in astrobiology is not likely; instead, students interested in astrobiology careers will probably continue to take degrees in one of the standard science disciplines.
P.S. If you are interested in an astrobiology internship, you can check out the Astrobiology Academy at http://academy.arc.nasa.gov/
