Summary Some commentators have described the end of the fifties as watershed years in higher education. At the end of the fifties, a number of significant developments occurred: the first signs of the era of student activism on the Berkeley campus, or the California Master Plan in education, for example. As the sixties grew old, other educational movements caught the public eye: free schools and alternative education, open classrooms, instructional methods based on behavioral principles. Undergraduate education in psychology has been affected by the ferment. Humanistic psychologists discussed and designed educational methods that extended their students' freedom to learn. For psychology, long concerned with the problems of man in society, the relationship of the academic to the wider society necessarily became an acute concern in an era of social activism. The curricular problems unique to psychology and the more general problems of higher education provided the impetus for the present study of challenges facing undergraduate psychology and responses to these challenges. The goals of the present report are to describe undergraduate education in psychology nationwide and to report on innovative approaches that may point the way to the future.
