Positive psychology that characterizes the activities of Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi (education, research, and community service) leads to the achievement of psychological well-being through the recognition and empowerment of individual, group and community strengths. The WMSCU Faculty of Psychology produces psychology graduates who are qualified with integrity, adaptive, empathetic, and rational who have the priority values of university’s value: PeKA (Caring, Committed, Enthusiastic). This is the evident from many graduates of the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology who are accepted and excel in various fields of work, including as HRD ( human resource development ) staff and leaders, industrial practitioners, speakers, and trainers , school principals, Guidance and Counseling teachers, educational consultants, assistants, psychologist and assistant therapist.

Talking about the vision and mission, the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology positions itself as an agent of change and a center of excellence in the field of positive psychology on a national and international level. Through its mission, the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology applies the scientist-practitioner model in its learning process. Students are equipped not only with theory, but also with relevant practical activities, including through internships in companies, schools, hospitals, and other institutions in accordance with their field of interest (clinical psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, educational psychology, developmental psychology, and social psychology). In short, with this experiential learning method (learning by experiencing), learning process become active and dynamic. Students are invited to directly review the field (field study), make visits to various institutions or companies, and have direct discussions with practitioners or experts from within and outside the country (guest lectures). To hone student skills more deeply, learning media and adequate psychology laboratory facilities are used. Students are also encouraged to think innovatively as well as to apply their ideas and thoughts through research with positive psychology nuances and their involvement in various training programs and community service, as well as other student activities.

Currently, the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology has two Psychology study programs which are located in Surabaya campus and Madiun campus. Learning in both study programs is relatively standardized using the same curriculum. Even by utilizing the internet network, educational activities and other Higher Education Tri Dharmas can be carried out simultaneously or integratively involving both campuses. In line with government policy, the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology at both campuses supports and is actively involved in various Merdeka Learn Campus (MBKM) programs.
This is evident from the selection of UKWMS Psychology Faculty students to participate in the Independent Student Exchange program (exchange of students abroad), the Indonesian International Student Mobility Award (IISMA, a one-semester scholarship abroad) program, and certified internships. In addition, the WMSCU Faculty of Psychology also establishes international collaborations with various universities abroad such as Vancouver Island University-Canada, Saint Louis University-Philippines, and Saint Louis College-Thailand, so that WMSCU Psychology Faculty students have broad opportunities to develop themselves and carry out international learning activities.
