Dean’s Welcome

Welcome to the Faculty! In this faculty, we pride ourselves for the quality of our undergraduate, masters, and doctoral programs. Consistently rated among the top faculties of psychology in Indonesia, we provide our students with many opportunities to discover their creative talents and to grow to be caring and nurturing professionals.


Our faculty is also known for its strengths in research and policy advocacy. Along with our many partners around the world, our staffs carve new niches of research in clinical psychology, particularly in public mental health, and initiate various national advocacies that have changed the ways professional psychologists work in public mental health sectors. We are also proud of the exciting new lines of research that our staffs have threaded in areas of indigenous psychology. Our scholars are exploring issues of resilience, happiness, trustworthiness, and mental health from a refreshingly new angle, which have pushed new boundaries in our professional practice in Indonesia. Our research center partners with professional associations and universities in Asia Pacific regions to continue disseminating this knowledge of indigenous psychology.

Our vision is to be a world class university, to educate our students through rigorous scientific inquiry, and to provide tomorrow’s leaders who enhance lives and society for Indonesia and beyond. Our mission is to provide education of the highest quality, coupled with a leading contribution to the advancement of research and community service. Through our benchmarking and internationalization efforts, we aim to produce outstanding professionals who can contribute to the field of psychology and society as a whole.

I hope that you enjoy your ‘visit’ to the Faculty of Psychology of Universitas Gadjah Mada through this website. If you have not visited recently or ever, I hope that you spend time at our campus and connect with our warm and welcoming community.

Psychology is a rapidly changing field of study that covers a wide range of topics regarding human behaviors in various life span and settings.

Here in the Faculty of Psychology, we tackle the extraordinary complexity of human behaviour, accompanied by faculty members currently spearheading research, among others in culture and psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and mental health.

As the leading psychology program in Indonesia, we work with the most talented and driven students from Indonesia and around the world, and pride ourselves as the home of skilled graduates, researchers, practitioners, and leaders of our community.
