An Alumni Perspective
Will we see a world-wide increase in the number of psychologically literate citizens in coming years? The second half of the 20th century saw a meteoric rise in psychology education at all levels—first in the USA, then internationally. How is this likely to impact public knowledge and attitudes toward psychology? This data-based essay reviews the development of the field, its changing image, mixed views of the field, its meteoric growth inside and outside the USA, and the likely impact of this growth on future citizens’ “psychological literacy.”
