This dissertation takes part of the research line State and Educational Policies and has as aim to understand the expansion of Higher Education, specially of majoring in teaching courses, in Goiás, in the context of Brazilian educational policies after Law 9394, from 1996 (Law of Guidelines and Basis of Brazilian Education). The research begins with the contextualization of political and educational reforms implemented by MEC (Ministry of Education in Brazil) which carried out several changes in the organization, structuring and working of Higher Education institutions and redefined their role in Brazil. The subject matter is approached by means of a documental research, reflections about public policies for Higher Education in Brazil supported by the analysis of theoretical works in the area and documents which allowed establishing a dialogue with the researched facts. The conclusion of this investigation leads to the difference between Goiás and other Brazilian States: the expansion of majoring in teaching for Basic Education courses occurred both by means of a state controlled university movement into inner lands, which brought higher education courses to a lot of cities in the State, and by means of the offer of courses by Goiás State University (Universidade Estadual de Goiás - UEG), a public institution founded in 1999. This University made it possible to establish many Higher Education courses all over the state and is also responsible for the highest number of majoring in teaching courses in Goiás
