In order to ascertain whether the concepts of morality and ethics in the work of a psychologist vary and how students perceive the opportunities for taking responsibility and reflection directed along the course, students from the first and last years of psychology were asked to respond two questionnaires: an evaluation of the academic environment and another on the concepts of morals and ethics. The instruments were analyzed separately and then crossed. Some results: students do not realize many opportunities for meeting responsibility and reflection addressed during training and concepts of morality and ethics presented by the students are bound to the rules and code of ethics.
