    What major/ field that deals(studies) with Biology and Psychology in a 50:50 ratio?

    It's doesnt have to be exactly 50:50. Would do if it's close to that ratio. Looking for a major that has a balance of both.

    I've looked at Psychobiology/Biopsychology, and honestly, i'm kinda disappointed because it's too devoted to Biology. Any idea, peeps?

    If you've already looked into BioPsych and determined there's too much bio, then it's really tough to answer your question.

    You might consider a field like cognition or perception, although those may be "too bio" for you, also. Neuroscience is cool, but likely suffers from the same problem of too much bio.

    Have you considered a double-major, or a major in Psych with a minor in Bio?

    A double degree in both might mean too much course that I dont want from both Biology and Psychology especially Biology. For example, Ecology from Biology

    Yeah, I can appreciate that. I guess the next question becomes, "What does it mean for a set of coursework to contain too much bio?" Once you answer that question with something meaningful, it might be easier to just land on a major.

    I'm also somewhat curious why you want a 50/50 mix of bio and psych, yet all of these fields mentioned are met with a response from you that there is "too much bio."

    Seems to me that you want something more like an 80/20 mix, but I could be wrong.
