This article analyzes the impacts of studying for master and doctorate levels on the professional life of 305 graduates from FaE-UFMG Education Program, from 1977 to 2006. Based on a questionnaire applied to the teachers, we obtained information concerning the professional activities of the graduates. The results were sorted out by decades and demonstrate that teaching in higher education is their main occupation. Most PhDs work in academic institutions, while masters teach in institutions of higher education, basic education and autonomous activities. We report on the impact on their classroom and we noticed that they realize and take consciouness many aspects that constitute their practices, although shy specificities were found. Masters and Phds. evaluate positively the research training and their quick passage through the Faculty of Education. They assess a postgraduate course as an opportunity to do researches and achieve knowledge production. As for their search for teacher education, many questions remain open mainly those concerning the relation between teaching and research.
