This study was designed in the format of general survey model. The data collected through "The Attitude Scale of Turkish Candidate Teachers' Field and Professional Knowledge Courses" was applied in the study and the collected data was analyzed at SPSS 17 software. In the study, in respect to the views of the pre-service teachers, it was found that FKC was at a high level functionally, at an average level in content, and at a low level in material and theory-practice distributions. Also, it was revealed that the views of pre-service teachers on the FKC showed significant differences depending on the universities they are from. On the other hand, it was stated that the general grade-point average was not a significant predictor in the views of the Turkish pre-service teachers' about the FKC.
