The purpose of this study is to explore pre-service teachers' values and views about value education. 434 preservice teachers who are at third and fourth year of their university education in 5 different departments of Ondokuz Mayis University have participated in the research. While determining departments, "Practices of Community Service" course which can be effective in value acquisition has been considered. The research data have been collected using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. "Schwartz Values Scale" has been applied to pre-service teachers in order to obtain their views on values. In addition, a form including five open-ended interview questions about how the values are gained and transferred by pre-service teachers has been applied. Descriptive statistics and linear regression have been used for analysing the data obtained from the scale. Qualitative data has been analyzed with the descriptive analysis techniques. As a result, pre-service teachers possess universalism, benevolence and security types mostly; and their value education views fall under different headings such as programs, thoughts of being a model, enjoyment of experience and providing students with environment to demonstrate their thoughts.
