Established on July 17, 2016, the International Undergraduate Program (IUP) in the Faculty of Psychology is designed to provide students with a broader range of understandings of psychology. We involve our students in the international academic forum through our teaching methods, one of them being the International Academic Exposure (IAE). With IAE, students are expected to build connections with global academic communities and learn their methods by participating in exchange programs, short courses, research apprenticeships, and international conferences.

As part of the IAE preparation, several psychological centers operate within this faculty, including the Center for Indigenous and Cultural Psychology (CICP), Lembaga Pengembangan Kualitas Manusia (LPKM), Mind, Brain & Behavior Laboratory (MBB Lab), etc. Students can take part in these centers to hone their skills. Located in the heart of Yogyakarta, a vibrant city rich in culture, students can immerse themselves within its diversity and even see it as a psychological phenomenon.

We also work together with Harvard University to allow students to do a research collaboration. Apart from these universities, students can also seek other exchange opportunities offered by the UGM Office of International Affairs.

Learning Outcomes

After completing their studies, our students are expected to implement their acquired knowledge in the real world through their fields. They should incorporate theoretical understandings from various schools of thought (e.g., humanistic, social, developmental, etc.) to make sense of and analyze real-world situations. From there, they can make impactful contributions to both the academic and non-academic societies in the form of community service, policy briefs, advocacies, and academic papers

Career Prospects

Our alumni have established careers in various fields that involve human functioning. Those fields include human resources, education, research, clinical psychology, etc. It is worth mentioning that for psychology graduates to build a career in the research and clinical fields, they must at the minimum earn either a master's in psychology or a master's in clinical psychology, respectively.
