In this study, the values of students in the physical education and sport departments were examined according to their gender, age, grade, and departments. The questionnaire method was used in the study. As the data collection tool, the Portrait Values Questionnaire was applied. The study group consisted of a total of 389 students 126 of whom were female, and 263 were male; and selected from 4 different universities according to the Cluster Sampling Method. The Mann-Whitney U Test and Kruskal Wallis H Tests, which are among the common statistical tests, were used in the study. The significance level was selected as a=0.05 in the tests. The effect size of the tests was determined to be generally medium-size. As a conclusion, the ranking of the values of the students studying at Physical Education and Sports Departments were determined as "benevolence, universalism, security, achievement, stimulation, self-direction, hedonism, conformity, power and tradition". While the power, tradition, conformity and security value points of the female students were found to be higher than the male students, the hedonism and stimulation points of the male students were higher than the female students. A difference was determined between the achievement, stimulation and conformity values according to the ages of the students. Although there was no difference between the value points according to the departments of the students, there was a difference between the value points according to their ages.
