The research method of this study was survey. 232 physical education students (116 male and 116 female) and 200 coaching students (141 male and 59 female) voluntarily participated in this study. Data was gathered by using the Human Right Attitude in Sport Questionnaire which was built up by Sadik and Mirzeoglu in 2014. The Independent Samples T-Test was applied to analyze the differences between groups at a significant level of p<0.005. Findings showed there was no difference in the Human Rights Attitudes in Sport of physical education teacher candidates between genders whereas it was found that coaching candidates differed only in social rights sub dimension. On the other hand, while the human rights attitudes in sport of physical education teacher candidates differed only in the solidarity rights sub dimension according to their grade level, similar difference was found only in the social right sub dimension of coaching candidates considering grade level. Moreover, it was reported that there was a significant difference between physical education teacher and coaching candidates in personality and social rights sub dimensions, but no difference was found in the solidarity rights sub dimension.
