MORAIS, Normanda Araujo de; SOUZA, Luana Elayne Cunha de; MAIA, Luciana Maria  e  TEIXEIRA, Leônia Cavalcante. Challenges and Perspectives of a Psychology Postgraduate Program of a Private Institution in Northeast Brazil. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp. 159-170. ISSN 1413-294X.

The aim is to present the Postgraduate Program in Psychology (PPG-Psi) of the University of Fortaleza (Unifor), discussing challenges and perspectives of its existence, as a program of a private institution located in northeastern Brazil. Therefore, two empirical studies were performed: the first outlined the research carried out in the program and the second analyzed the teachers' perceptions of the program about the challenges they face in their daily teaching work. The results indicated the theoretical and methodological plurality that constitutes the PPG-Psi, illustrated in the titles of dissertations and theses; and that the main challenges cited by the teachers refer to the economic imperative that governs private higher education institutions and the prejudice suffered. The good working conditions and specificities of work at Unifor were also mentioned. The future perspectives were described based on internal and external actions to PPG-Psi, valuing the academic-scientific production and, above all, their social and political relevance.
