Since the creation of the Psychology Graduation Course in 2005, the creation of a Psychology Graduate Program at the Faculty of Education of the Federal University of Goiás (UFG) was already envisioned. From the conclusion of the first undergraduate class in Psychology in 2010, plans began to be drawn up which resulted, in 2014, in CAPES 'recommendation to create the first stricto sensu Graduate Program in Psychology at a public university in the state of Goiás. The creation of this program is, therefore, the result of the maturation of the undergraduate course in Psychology (undergraduate and bachelor's degree) at UFG, which, in 2013, had four classes with the completed course. Although Psychology is a new course at UFG, it has a teaching staff and a physical space that can contribute enormously to teaching and research in Psychology in the Midwest region. Psychology at UFG has laboratories, study rooms, research centers, a Psychology Center in which teaching, research, and extension activities are carried out in the most different areas of Psychology and, also, a Center for Studies, Research, and Extension of the Adolescent (CEPEA).
