There is a tendency to use the potential of the category "attitude" in the studies of bribery as a widespread form of corruption. The publications addressed to psychological attitude of subjects to corruption emphasize the need to expand the methodological base of its research, the importance of identifying its dynamics among young people. This study was aimed at establishing dynamics of value-semantic attitude to bribery among urban students (126 schoolchildren, 107 College students, 120 University students) and working young people (102 people). The attitude to bribery is considered as a value-semantic or purpose-means psychological attitude in which bribery is presented in the mind of the subject as occupying the place of value, purpose or means in the fulfillment of certain needs and values. The content of the attitude is revealed in the unity of its components: cognitive (definition and functions of bribe), conative (the reasons for giving or receiving of bribes), emotional-value (feelings about bribery; assessing its influence on the state, social groups of the subject; prevention). The types of attitude to bribery among students and working young people are established. There is a curtailment of the attitude to bribery from the school stage of education to real professional activity as immoral behavior and illegal behavior, the attitude to bribery as a business economic transaction remains unchanged, and the dominant attitude to bribery as an instrumental value is formed.
